    It's best to re-arrange them like this: \[\left(-\dfrac{1}{4}\right)\left(-\dfrac{1}{2}\right)(12)\]

    Recall that when you multiply two negative numbers, the result is a positive number. That's your hint.

    The rest should be self explanatory if you know how to multiply whole numbers and fractions.

    Well, multiplying two negative numbers gives the same result as multiplying two positive numbers.
