\[-15 \times \frac{ 3 }{ 5 }\] This looks a lot better.

I used a Ti-83 calculater to jump and get the answer. They are so complex. I must've made an error.

\[ \frac{-15}{\frac{3}{5}} \] if you multiply the top and bottom by the same number 5/3 in this case you get \[ \frac{-15\cdot \frac{5}{3}}{\frac{3}{5}\cdot \frac{5}{3}} \] in the bottom, 3/5 tiems 5/3 is 1 up top you have -15 times 5/3

rather than do all of that, people memorize this: to divide by a fraction, first "flip it" and then multiply in other words, change the problem from \[ -15 \div \frac{3}{5} \] to \[ -15 \cdot \frac{5}{3} \] I would divide 3 into -15, and then multiply that by 5 to get the answer
