Evaluating this requires knowledge of the fraction rules. Here it is step-by-step

 

\(\frac{-5}{\frac{4}{3}}\) This is the original expression. Let's apply a rule with fractions that says that \(\frac{a}{\frac{b}{c}}=\frac{ac}{b}\hspace{1mm},b\neq0,c\neq0\)
\(\frac{-5*3}{4}\) Using the rule above, the problem becomes simpler to understand and solve
\(\frac{-15}{4}=-3.75\)
