First get common denominators.

We can find this by looking at one term, determining what factors it is missing from the other term, and then multiplying those factors in.

Now we multiply each fraction by a unit factor to get the common denominator.

Now we can finally combine the fractions

To combine 4/(3p) and -5/(2p^2), we need a common denominator. The least common denominator is 6p^2. Multiplying the first fraction by 2p/2p and the second fraction by 3/3, we get (8p)/(6p^2) - (15)/(6p^2). Combining the fractions, we have (8p - 15)/(6p^2).
