I will evaluate this expression, but I find it odd that the title of this post is "Multiplying and dividing rational numbers" despite those operators never appearing

 

\(-9.4-2.7=-(9.4+2.7)=-12.1\)

 

Sometimes, I find that it is easier to treat the problem as an addition problem and stick in the negative sign at the final answer, just like the work I have shown.

Do not edit the question. Especially not after it has been answered!

Negative time positive = negative

So -9.7 x 2.7 = - 26.29

You can just use a caculator... You know...
