    \[\frac{ \frac{ -3 }{ 5 } }{ \frac{ -6 }{ 7 } }\]First separate the problem so it can look more simpler.\[\frac{ -3 }{ 5 } \div \frac{ -6 }{ 7 }\]

    Then flip the second fraction so it can look like this:\[\frac{ -3 }{ 5 } \times \frac{ 7 }{ -6 }\] (*Remember when flipping the second fraction, the division sign changes to multiplication*)

    Now multiply the numerators together and the denominators. \[\frac{ -3 }{ 5 } \times \frac{ 7 }{ -6 } = \frac{ -21 }{ -30 }\]

    Lastly, you need to simplify the fraction.\[\frac{ -21 }{ -30 } = \frac{ 7 }{ 10 }\]
