Work Step by Step

For $\frac{3}{4}$ - $\frac{2}{15}$, we need a common denominator. The least common denominator for the two fractions is 60. Writing the fractions as equivalent fractions with a denominator of 60 and then performing the arithmetic, we get: $\frac{45}{60}$ - $\frac{8}{60}$ = $\frac{37}{60}$ Since the fraction will not reduce, it is our final answer.
