The given expression is $-\frac{2}{3}-\frac{1}{2}$ .

For the addition of any two numbers of same signs add their absolute values and then attach their common sign.

Absolute values of the numbers are,

$|-\frac{2}{3}|=\frac{2}{3}$

$|-\frac{1}{2}|=\frac{1}{2}$

Now, add the absolute value.

Since, the numbers are negative, attach the common negative sign to the answer.

So, the sum of the given expression is$-\frac{7}{6}$ .

Final statement:

Therefore, the simplified form of the expression$-\frac{2}{3}-\frac{1}{2}\text{}is\text{}-\frac{7}{6}$ .

If you have a system fo linear equations, the solution is where the equations intersect

Using row reduction you get a system of linear equations which still satisfies the intersection

Why are free variables used?

The values in which the free variable can be are limited in a range as for if the solution is a line and not a plane

So what is the point in writing the solutions as a set of vector additions using free variables?

If z in this case is a free variable, writing the solution in a vector equation

Where , denotes a new row

Solving for the pivot variables x and y and writing into decomposed vector form

[x,y] = [4,0] - [0,3] + z[1,2]

Z is said to be any real number zeR But looking at the graph, when z = 4, y=11/8 is not on the line of intersection So why do they say that z is a free variable when it isnt?
