how do you solve this problem???

Write each rational number in the form a/b where a and b are both integers and b is not equal to zero...

Ex: -2.3 would it be -2 3/10???

    I think that's right!

    O sorry....

    I just realized it has to be in the form a/b.

    Chenge (-2 3/10) to an improper fraction to do so.

    (-2*10 + 3) / 10 = -17/10

    I think -17/10 is your answer!

    chenge ---> change
