Seven ninths divided by a negative 3.Could you pleas answer my question and go step by step.

My name is Allen and I'm in the Eight grade.that's all I need thanks

Hi Allen

Lets just ignore the "negative" for a moment. Seven ninths divided by three is means divide 7/9 into 3 parts. So each part is one third of 7/9, that is 1/3 of 7/9 or (1/3)(7/9) = 7/27.

Now put the negative sign back in the problem.

(7/9)/(-3) = (1/-3)(7/9) = 7/(-27) = -7/27.
