    Since this is multiplication and their are 3 signs, we can say the results will be negative.

    Let me check. Numerators are -5, 1, -3, -1 when you multiply -5x1x-3x-1 you should get -15. Denominators are: 6, 8, 7, 7 Multiply them you should get 2352, Double check your work and see where you drifted off course.

    The fraction would be without any reducing: -15/2352 Have you found your error?
