By what number should -44/9 be divided to get -11/3

### Solution

Let the number to be divided from -44/9 to get -11/3 be = x

As per the given statement the mathematical equation becomes

$$-\frac{44}{9}\div x = -\frac{11}{3}$$

On shifting x to the RHS side we get

= $$-\frac{44}{9}= -\frac{11}{3}\times x$$

Shifting 11/3 to the LHS and cancelling the negative sign we get

=$$\frac{44}{9} \times\frac{3}{11} = x$$

=$$\frac{44}{9} \times\frac{3}{11} = x$$

Hence

x=4/3

4/3 must be divided by -44/9 to get -11/3
