Question

Simplify:
$$-5/8 \div 3/4$$


Solution

$$-5/8 \div 3/4$$
It can be written as
$$= -5/8 \times 4/3$$
$$= \left(-5 \times 4\right)/\left(8 \times 3\right)$$
So we get
$$= -20/24$$
Here the HCF of $$20$$ and $$24$$ is $$4$$
So by dividing both numerator and denominator by $$4$$
$$= \left(-20 \div 4 \right)/\left(24 \div 4 \right)$$
$$= -5/6$$
