    I did the problem but I got a funky number that doesn't seem right. I got 19/6 and it doesnt seem correct somehow

    Yeah, I understand that part. Then I subtract -6 minus 1 and I get -7

    Well there is another way to do it I guess, but dan's is the simplest

    yup, we could do it my way if you want? But it's the longer way,

    |dw:1378779944389:dw| So first what we would do is simplify the fractions down. Once we get that part done we cross-multiply

    Wait, I just went over dan's work. and i understand what he was trying to do. Except that when i subtract -5-1 I get -6 not 6?

    Oh since both of them are negative, it will become positive. Correct?

    So technically I'm just substituting a number in to get 6 right?
