Answer

$\frac{19}{32}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{29}{32}-\frac{5}{16}$ now the least common multiple of 32 & 16 are 32. so multiply the nominator and denominator of second fraction with 2. $\frac{29}{32}-\frac{5\times2}{16\times2}$ = $\frac{29}{32}-\frac{10}{32}$ Subtract numerators, as both have same denominator = $\frac{29-10}{32}$ = $\frac{19}{32}$ It's the lowest term.
