Answer

$2\frac{5}{22}$

Work Step by Step

This can best be solved by converting both terms into their improper form. This can done by multiplying the preceding whole number by the denominator and adding the numerator. Then placing the result on the original denominator. This will result in: $\frac{61}{11} - \frac{73}{22}$ Multiply the first term by 2. $\frac{122}{22} - \frac{73}{22} = \frac{49}{22}$ --$\gt$ $2\frac{5}{22}$
