You first make the fractions improper ones:

 

-1 2/3 = -5/3

 

Make the denominators of the fractions the same, since you would want the calculations to later be easier:

 

-5/3 = (-5)(2)/(3)(2) = -10/6

 

Now do as you would simplify like denominators:

 

((-10) - (-5))/6 = -5/6

 

Your answer is -5/6
