-1/2 divided _____________= -7/3
how do I get the number that equals -7/3
think about 6 divided by ____ = 2
How would you solve this problem?
divide 6 by 2 to get 3
It is true that 6 divided by 3 = 2
do the same thing here-
-1/2 divided by -7/3
Instead of dividing fractions we multiply by the reciprocal
-1/2 times -3/7
Multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators and that will give you your answer.
Be sure to check in the original problem.
