    WHAT is your question? I see no fractions in your expression.
    I'm just an imagination of your figment !

    I don't see any fractions here, either!

    Multiply each term inside the second set of parentheses by -2, and then combine like terms.

    Please show us your work on this problem so we can see where you might be making a mistake.

    (4x/5-2y)-2(2x+7/3y) is [tex](\frac{4x}{5}-2y) - 2(2x + \frac{7}{3y})[/tex]. Is that what is meant?
