I have to subtract and then simplify if possible.

the problem is....

(4-v)over(v-6) minus (2v-5)over(6-v).

I hope I put that on there to where someone can understand it because I have a hard time trying to figure out how to even get them on a computer for some of my assignments.

You can change the sign of the denominator of the second term and change the - to + at the same time.

That gives you

= (4-v)/(v-6) + (2v-5)/(v-6)

Now that you have a common denominator, you can add the numerators together.

= (4 - v + 2v -5)/(v-6)

= (v-1)/(v-6)
