1 Answer

Answer:

#95/84#

Explanation:

Follow #BODMASS# rule for simplification as follows

#3/4-1/2(1/3+3/7)#

#=3/4-1/2(\frac{1\cdot 7+3\cdot 3}{3\cdot 7})#

#=3/4-1/2(\frac{16}{21})#

#=3/4-1/2\times \frac{16}{21}#

#=3/4- \frac{8}{21}#

#=\frac{3\cdot 21+8\cdot 4}{4\cdot 21}#

#=\frac{63+32}{84}#

#=95/84#
