Step 1
The given operation is subtraction of fractions.
Step 2
When the denominator of two fractions are same,
we can add or subtract the numerators directly and
keep the denominator same. That is,
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{2}}}{{{x}{z}^{{3}}}}}-{\frac{{{14}}}{{{x}{z}^{{3}}}}}={\frac{{{2}-{14}}}{{{x}{z}^{{4}}}}}={\frac{{-{12}}}{{{x}{z}^{{4}}}}}\)
the answer is \(\displaystyle{\frac{{-{12}}}{{{x}{z}^{{4}}}}}\)
