I want you to do something like this (here's a different example): 6/12 = 1/2 You think: 6 goes into 6 once; 6 goes into 12 twice. So ... what's the simplest form for -7/14?

Close --- you're just missing the minus sign in front: -7/14 = -1/2

So far, this is what we have: \[\frac{-7/14}{3} = \frac{-1/2}{3}\] Now, we need to remember: dividing by 3 is the same as multiplying by 1/3 . Do you believe that?

  • NarfThePanda
yes

So, \[\frac{-1/2}{3} = -\frac 12\cdot \frac{1}{3}\] Can you take it from here?
