Answer:

#1/6#

Explanation:

Replace each variable by the value given.

#color(blue)(a = 4)" "color(red)(b = -2)" "color(forestgreen)(c =-3)#

#(color(blue)(a)+3color(red)(b))/(4color(forestgreen)(c))#

#=(color(blue)(4)+3color(red)((-2)))/(4color(forestgreen)((-3)))" "larr# multiply by the brackets

#=(color(blue)(4)color(red)(-6))/(color(forestgreen)(-12))#

#= (-2)/12#

# =1/6#
