To divide fractions, you flip the second one and then multiply. Remember to multiply across the top and across the bottom. [latex]- \frac{10}{17} *- \frac{17}{15} = \frac{-170}{-255} [/latex] Then you simply: [latex] \frac{-170/85}{-255/85} = \frac{2}{3} [/latex] Negative times a negative gives you a positive so it is no longer negative. Hope that helps.
