7/8-3/4(2-1/6)-2/3 is equal to

I made a common denominator of 24

21/24-1&+12/24+3/24-16/24

-15/24+3/24-16/24

-12/24-16/24

-28/24

both are divible by 2

-14/12 & divide both by 2 again to get

-7/6

Is this correct?

Thank you

= 7/8 - 3/2 + 1/8 - 2/3

= 21/24 - 36/24 + 3/24 - 16/24

= -28/24

= -7/6

You are correct !

Notice you evaluated the bracket first, I used the distributive property.

Of course we have to end up with the same result, since both methods are valid.
