Subtract: 3 2 X − 5 4 Y − 7 2 Z from 2 3 X + 3 2 Y − 4 3 Z - Mathematics

Subtract:

$\frac{3}{2}x - \frac{5}{4}y - \frac{7}{2}z \text { from }\frac{2}{3}x + \frac{3}{2}y - \frac{4}{3}z$

Solution

$\left( \frac{2}{3}x + \frac{3}{2}y - \frac{4}{3}z \right) - \left( \frac{3}{2}x - \frac{5}{4}y - \frac{7}{2}z \right)$

$= \frac{2}{3}x + \frac{3}{2}y - \frac{4}{3}z - \frac{3}{2}x + \frac{5}{4}y + \frac{7}{2}z$

$= \frac{2}{3}x - \frac{3}{2}x + \frac{3}{2}y + \frac{5}{4}y - \frac{4}{3}z + \frac{7}{2}z (\text { Collecting like terms } )$

$= - \frac{5}{6}x + \frac{11}{4}y + \frac{13}{6}z (\text { Combining like terms })$
