dear samiksha
they are quite simple .
just substract .
5/9 – (-5/8)
= 5/9 + 5/8 = 85/72 .
HOPE IT CLEARS
you can do that by taking x also
kindly approve
cheers

Suppose that number is x.
Then as per problem statement
x+(-5/8)= 5/9
x= 5/9+5/8
x=5(1/9+1/8)
x=5(17/72)=85/72=1.180555

Let the number to be added be x.

Then  -5/8 + x = 5/9
x = 5/9 + 5/8
x = 40 + 45/72
x = 85/72.

Therefore, the number to be added to – 5/8 in order to get +5/9 is 85/72.

-5/8+x=5/9
x=5/9+5/8
x=(45+40)/72
x=85/72    the l.c.m of 9 and 8 is 72 so we get the denominator as 72
these are simple but clarify our doubts it’s good
