# How do you solve 5/9=-2/3n?

Jul 6, 2016

$- \frac{15}{18} = n$

#### Explanation:

Given equation:

$\frac{5}{9} = - \frac{2}{3} n$

We need to divide out $- \frac{2}{3}$. To do this, we need to multiply by the reciprocal, which is $- \frac{3}{2}$.

$\frac{5 \times - 3}{9 \times 2} = n$

$- \frac{15}{18} = n$
