    Solution for the given fractions

    $ \frac{2}{7 }-\frac{ 5}{8 }=? $

    The common denominator of the two fractions is: 56

    $ \frac{2}{7 }= \frac{(2*8)}{(7*8)} =\frac{ 16}{56} $

    $ \frac{5}{8 }= \frac{(5*7)}{(7*8)} =\frac{ 35}{56} $

    Fractions adjusted to a common denominator

    $ \frac{2}{7 }-\frac{ 5}{8 }=\frac{ 16}{56 }-\frac{ 35}{56} $

    $ \frac{16}{56 }-\frac{ 35}{56 }= \frac{(16-35)}{56} $

    $ \frac{(16-35)}{56 }= -\frac{19}{56} $

    $ $
