Answer:

#69/(98s)#

Explanation:

First we find common denominators. I did by multiplying each denominator to the other fraction. Should look like this

#((49)13)/((49)14s)-((14)11)/((14)49s)#

Then we get
#637/(686s)-154/(686s)#

#(637-154)/(686s)#

#483/(686s)#

There is a common multiple of #7# between the numerator and denominator. So we then divide the numerator and denominator by #7#, giving us

#69/(98s)#
