Answer

-$\frac{9}{40}$

Work Step by Step

-$\frac{9}{4}$($\frac{1}{2}$)+$\frac{3}{4}$$\div$$\frac{5}{6}$ First change the division to multiplication of the reciprocal -$\frac{9}{4}$($\frac{1}{2}$)+$\frac{3}{4}$$\times$$\frac{6}{5}$ Then multiply both sets of fractions -$\frac{9}{8}$+$\frac{18}{20}$ Then make both fractions have the least common denominator of 40 -$\frac{9(5)}{8(5)}$+$\frac{18(2)}{20(2)}$ -$\frac{45}{40}$+$\frac{36}{40}$ Then add -$\frac{9}{40}$
