Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. I'm going to break down the process for you. Step 1: Find a Common Denominator Find the least common multiple (LCM) of 5 and 7. Obviously, it's 35 since \(7 \times 5 = 35\). Step 2: Adapt the fractions by multiply the numerator and denominator of the fraction(s) by the same number so that the LCM is in the denominator. \[\frac 25  \frac17 \implies \frac25 \times \frac77  \frac17 \times \frac55 \implies \frac{14}{35}  \frac{5}{35}\]Step 3: Simplify by combining like terms.\[\frac{14}{35}  \frac{5}{35} = ?\]
