Answer:

This number belongs to: integers #ZZ#, rational numbers #QQ#, and real numbers #RR#. See explanation.

Explanation:

Before finding out in which sets the number is located we have to write it in the simpliest form:

#-144/3=-48#

The result is an integer number (the minus sign says it is not a natural number).

All integer numbers are also rational and real, so #-144/3=-48# also belongs to the mentioned sets.
