    Answer:

    Aimee’s garbage disposal has 11/40 more power than Vincent’s garbage disposal.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Aimee’s garbage disposal horse power = 7/8

    Vincent’s garbage disposal horse power = 3/5

    All we need is to subtract Vincent’s power from Aimee’s power.

    i.e.

    \frac{7}{8}-\frac{3}{5}

    Thus,

    \frac{7}{8}-\frac{3}{5}\:=\frac{35}{40}-\frac{24}{40}

    \mathrm{Apply\:the\:fraction\:rule}:\quad \frac{a}{c}-\frac{b}{c}=\frac{a-b}{c}

             =\frac{35-24}{40}

             =\frac{11}{40}

    Thus,  Aimee’s garbage disposal has 11/40 more power than Vincent’s garbage disposal.
