# How do you evaluate 13\frac { 1} { 7} + ( - 6\frac { 2} { 7} )?

Mar 4, 2018

The answer is $\frac{48}{7}$.

#### Explanation:

Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction.
$= \frac{92}{7} + \left(- 6 \frac{2}{7}\right)$

When there is a "+" in front of the bracket, the expression remains the same.
$\frac{92}{7} - 6 \frac{2}{7}$

Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction.
$= \frac{92}{7} - \frac{44}{7}$

Subtract the fraction.
$= \frac{48}{7}$
