# How do you simplify (-6m+4)/10-(-3m-7)/10?

Aug 18, 2017

$= \frac{- 3 m + 11}{10}$

#### Explanation:

The fractions already have the same denominators so they can be combined into one fraction:

$\frac{- 6 m + 4}{10} - \frac{- 3 m - 7}{10}$

$= \frac{- 6 m + 4 - \left(- 3 m - 7\right)}{10}$

$= \frac{- 6 m + 4 + 3 m + 7}{10}$

$= \frac{- 3 m + 11}{10}$
