No, Sorry.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since the bases are different, you’ll have to change them even if they have a exponent or not. If you dunno how to make the denominators the same, just multiply the two by eachother.

Example) 1/2 – 3/4

Multiply 2 and 4 together, and then multiply the 4 to the one also. Multiply 2 to four and also to the 3.

The subtract from there.

and then Reduce (if needed.)
