Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0( 3 4 ( −8 25 ))( −5 12 ) = 3 4 ( −8 25 )( −5 12 ) = 3 4 ( −8 25 )( −5 12 ) = −6 25 ( −5 12 ) = 1 10 this is it step by step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahemm \(\bf \cfrac{3}{4}\left( \cfrac{8}{25} \right)\left( \cfrac{5}{12} \right)\implies \cfrac{3}{4}\left( \cfrac{8}{25} \right)\left( \cfrac{5}{12} \right) \\ \quad \\ \cfrac{3\cdot (8)\cdot (5)}{2\cdot 25\cdot 12}\implies \cfrac{\cancel{3}\cdot (2\cdot 2\cdot \cancel{2})\cdot (1\cdot \cancel{5})}{\cancel{2}\cdot (\cancel{5}\cdot 5)\cdot (\cancel{3}\cdot 4)}\)
