    Get your common denominators to subtract the fractions in parentheses first.

    Also, clarify: In your question, you have "2x3/2" but in the drawing it looks like "2x3/5" ?

    Yes, that looks right, as long as the 2and 3/5 is a mixed number and not multiplication.

    And if that is subtraction between that first fraction and the parentheses, then don't lose your minus sign.

    Looks good. The steps are right. You can probably simplify that fraction to lowest terms.
