Solve the following problems and reduce to lowest terms. 5 6 − 3 4

To determine

To calculate: The value of the expression 5634, reduction to lowest term.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided expression is 5634.

Formula used:

Steps for subtracting unlike fractions as:

Step 1: Evaluate the least common denominator.

Step 2: Raise each fraction to the denominator of the LCD.

Step 3: Subtract the numerators and place the difference over the original denominator.

Step 4: Reduce the answer to lowest terms if necessary.

Calculation:

Consider the provided expression,

5634

The LCD for the fractions 56,34 is determined by dividing the denominators of these fractions with prime numbers as shown below,

Prime Number        Denominators_         223                          64323111

As the bottom row has become 1, multiply all the prime numbers to obtain the LCD,
