See a solution process below:


This is Division and Multiplication which are done in the same step, left to right.

Therefore, the first step is to do the division on the left:

#color(red)(45)/color(blue)(3)(-5) => 15(-5)#

Next we can Multiply the result of the Division by the term within the parenthesis:

#color(red)(15)(color(blue)(-5)) => -75#
