# By what number should -33/16 be divided to get -22/8?

Let us assume X is the number which divides -33/16 to get -22/8.

$$\frac{-\frac{33}{16}}{X} = -\frac{22}{8}$$ $$X = \frac{-\frac{33}{16}}{-\frac{22}{8}}$$ $$X = \frac{33\times 8}{22\times 16}$$ $$X = \frac{264}{352}$$

Divided the above equation by 88 we get

X = 3/4
