Work Step by Step

$\frac{3}{4}$ - $\frac{1}{2}$$\times \frac{8}{9}= =\frac{3}{4} - \frac{1\times8}{2\times9}= =\frac{3}{4} -\frac{1\times2\times4}{2\times9}= =\frac{3}{4} - \frac{4}{9}= =\frac{3}{4}$$\times$ $\frac{9}{9}$ - $\frac{4}{9}$$\times$$\frac{4}{4}$= =$\frac{27}{36}$ - $\frac{16}{36}$=$\frac{27-16}{36}$ = =$\frac{11}{36}$
