# How do write in simplest form given #-4/5+(-1/3)#?

To get equivalent fraction values, we must first find the "least common denominator." Next, we must combine the fractions arithmetically to get a single value. Lastly, we must "reduce" the resulting fraction (if at all possible) to obtain the "simplest" form.

You multiply the given fractions by to get equivalent fractions.

To write the expression -4/5 + (-1/3) in simplest form, we first need to find a common denominator for the fractions, which is the least common multiple (LCM) of 5 and 3, which is 15.

Now, we rewrite the fractions with the common denominator:

-4/5 = -4/5 * 3/3 = -12/15 -1/3 = -1/3 * 5/5 = -5/15

Now, we can add the fractions:

-12/15 + (-5/15) = -12/15 - 5/15 = -17/15

So, the expression -4/5 + (-1/3) written in simplest form is -17/15.
