# How do you simplify (17k+14)/9-(12k+1)/9?

$\frac{5 k + 13}{9}$
The fraction have the same denominators so just subtract the numerators. E.g. $\frac{5}{9} - \frac{4}{9} = \frac{5 - 4}{9} = \frac{1}{9}$
$\frac{17 k + 14}{9} - \frac{12 k + 1}{9} = \frac{17 k + 14 - 12 k - 1}{9} = \frac{5 k + 13}{9}$
