negative two ninths is -2/9 positive 3 and one fourth is 3 1/4 -2/9 ÷ 3 1/4 First, we need to convert the mixed fraction into an improper fraction. 3 1/4 = ((3*4)+1)/4 = 13/4 -2/9 ÷ 13/4 Rules in dividing fractions: 1) Get the reciprocal of the 2nd fraction. 1st fraction ⇒ -2/9 2nd fraction ⇒ 13/4  ; reciprocal ⇒ 4/13 2) Multiply the 1st fraction to the reciprocal of the 2nd fraction -2/9 * 4/13 = (-2*4) / (9*13) = -8/117 3) Simplify the fraction: -8/117 is the simplest fraction. -2/9 ÷ 3 1/4 = -8/117
