    \[\frac{-18}{\frac{2}{3}}\] Since you can always multiply the top and bottom by the same thing, I'd start by multiplying the outer fraction by 3/3 to clear the complex fraction.

    What would you get if you multiply by 3/3

    Yes, 3/3 is 1, but we want to write it as 3/3.

    \[\frac{-18}{\frac{2}{3}} * \frac{3}{3} = \frac{(-18)(3)}{2}\]
