    \[sin\theta + cos\theta = \frac{7}{6}\]\[(sin\theta + cos\theta)^2 = (\frac{7}{6})^2\]\[sin^2\theta + cos^2\theta+2sin\theta cos\theta= \frac{49}{36}\]\[1+2sin\theta cos\theta= \frac{49}{36}\]\[2sin\theta cos\theta= \frac{13}{36}\] \[sin\theta - cos\theta\]\[=\sqrt{(sin\theta - cos\theta)^2}\]\[=\sqrt{(sin^2\theta-2sin\theta\cos\theta+\cos^2\theta)}\]You know what \(sin^2\theta + cos^2\theta\) and \(2sin\theta\cos\theta\) are, so you can find the answer.

    sin0 + cos0 = 7/6 let sin0 - cos0 = x square both sides of both eqns and add them, you'll get your answer in the very next step.
