When adding rational numbers we need a common denominator. We have

-7/12 + 5/6

What is the least common multiple of 12 and 6? After you find that make sure both fractions are expressed as a ratio of some number to the lcm, then add the numerators, or in this case subtract one of them from the other.

ok
