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

    |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?
