Is there a particular problem you need assistance on?

Yes. I currently am working with stuff in negatives and positives in algebra and sadly none of my resources are a big help. The problem is  3/5 divided by negative 4/9.

pro tip for that just do 3/5/4/9 but since there is one negative write it as -3/5/4/9. then u can multiply the bottom # by the top # and then the middle #'s. You do - 3*9/4*5 and then that equals -27/20 or -1 7/20.

I would say cancel numbrs but i'm assuming this is difficult for our friend so just multiuply numerator by the other numerator and do the same for the denomenator the answer will be negitve then simplify it.

It turns into this equation, 3 over 5 x negative 9 over 4

(when dividing fractions you keep the first fraction the same, change the sign, and flip the second fraction and multiply across, numerator x numerator, and denominator x denominator)

Thanks! I also she usually don't exaggerate very much. Its my little sister that does that. She falls on the floor and says she "stuck" and she can get up just fine. In my head I go "Yeah. Your stuck up.". Shes good at math but she is in 3rd grade.
