Answer:

There is a trick to this that makes it simpler

#g=3#

Explanation:

Make the denominators (bottom numbers) all the same giving

#(4g)/14-6/14-g/14=3/14#

As all the denominators (bottom numbers) are now the same so now all we need to do is consider the numerators (top numbers).

#4g-6-g=3#

#3g=9#

#g=3#
