I am not sure that I answered this question right. A) 3/4 / -12=
3/4 / -11 12/12= 3/4 / - 144/12=
9/12 / -144/12= 9/12 * -12/144= -9/144=-16. B) 5/4 / 2 2/3=
15/12 / 32/12= 15/12 * 12/32= 15/32. Is this correct? Thanks

• Math -

Oh my oh my for A) !!

= (3/4)(-1/12)
= -1/16

B)
correct, but why are you finding common denominators for division and multiplication???
