@GrammaticalMistake How about you use Mathway

we can multiply the numerical coefficients separately, and the letteral parts separately, so we get: $\left( { - \frac{3}{4}} \right) \cdot \left( { - 8} \right) \cdot \left( {\frac{4}{3}} \right) \cdot 4 \cdot 1xy$

now, we can apply the associative property of multiplication, so, what is: $\left( { - \frac{3}{4}} \right) \cdot \left( { - 8} \right) = ...?$
