    well how i see it. you wrote it as negative 32 divide it by 85 divide it by 50 divide it by 51. that all equals to a negative small number... but if you have (-32/85)/(50/51) then the answer is -0.384

    no you don't. since you are dividing -32/85=-.3764 rounding the answer then take the answer -.3764/50=-.007529 rounding the answer take that answer -.007529/51=-0.0001476355248 final rounded answer

    -32 times 51 equals -16*2 times 17*3 equals -16*3 = -48 85 50 17*5 25*2 5*25 125
