    when denominator is common you can combine the numerator, \(\huge \dfrac{a}{b}+\dfrac{c}{b}=\dfrac{a+c}{b}\)

    there was -15 in 1st numerator and -22 in 2nd so, i wrote -15-22 now to evaluate that, you can factor out - *minus* so, -15-22 = - (15+22) you had to add actually.

    It's like if you have: |dw:1364852815238:dw| Because the denominators are the same, you can just rewrite it as one fraction: |dw:1364852863132:dw|
