What happens if you distribute the negative over to the fraction? $-(\frac{ 5 }{ 14 })=-\frac{ 5 }{ 14 }$

2. ShadowCain

yes, that's what I got. But it's not one of the options

3. anonymous

You mean B isn't the same? :P

4. ShadowCain

I just was wondering why not B or D

5. anonymous

Well, the answer is B. It's not D because D becomes positive. Negative divided by a negative is a positive.

6. ShadowCain

ok, that's true!!!
