#### Solution

$\text{We have}\frac{24}{7} + \frac{- 11}{4} .$
$\text{L.C.M. of thedenominators 7 and 4 is 28.}$
$\text{Now, we will express}\frac{24}{7}\text{and}\frac{- 11}{4} \text{in the form in which they take the denominator 28.}$
$\frac{24 \times 4}{7 \times 4} = \frac{96}{28}$
$\frac{- 11 \times 7}{4 \times 7} = \frac{- 77}{28}$
$\therefore \frac{24}{7} + \frac{- 11}{4} = \frac{96}{28} + \frac{- 77}{28}$
$= \frac{96 - 77}{28}$
$= \frac{19}{28}$
