Step-by-step explanation:

$$\frac{8}{15} -(-\frac{2}{3})\\ \\\frac{8}{15} -(-\frac{10}{15})\\\\\frac{8}{15} +\frac{10}{15} \\\\\frac{18}{15} =1\frac{3}{15}=1\frac{1}{5}$$

2. Step-by-step explanation:

8/15- (-2/3)

8/15 + 2/3

$$\frac{8 + 5(2)}{15} = \frac{8 + 10}{15} = \frac{18}{15} = \frac{6}{5}$$
