I am trying to solve the problem: [6 divided by (-3)] divided by (-1/6). Do I have to multiply the whole problem by 6 to get rid of the fraction or just the fraction?

when you divide a fraction, it's like multiplying the reciprocal of the fraction...

I'm a little confused still. I don't really know the way you wrote it, but I think I may see what you are saying.

So which part you don't understand?

I guess I thought to figure out the bracket first, then maybe multipy the recprical for the -1/6. Math is a bad subject for me.

That was the same for me, but when someone helps me to clear my concept, it's getting better now :P So for the bracket, [6 divided by (-3)] is actually 6 / -3 , do you understand this part?

I get that. I just didn't want to write it like that since there was another fraction. What I don't understand is why don't you solve that before doing anything else?

Hmm.. i think it's different from person to person. Of course you can simplify the fraction first, then it would be like this: |dw:1333208866808:dw|

Actually you can work in both ways, just choose the one you think is suitable for you :)
