Answer:

#color(red)((-7)/(14/3) = -3/2)#

Explanation:

#(-7)/(14/3) = "?"#

Step 1. Multiply the numerator by the reciprocal of the denominator.

#(-7)/(14/3) = -7 × 3/14 = -(7×3)/14#

Step 2. Simplify the fraction.

Divide both top and bottom by the highest common factor (#7#).

#-(7×3)/14 = -(1×3)/2 = -3/2#

#(-7)/(14/3) = -3/2#
