There are three ways to write the fraction $-\frac{2}{3}$, all of which have the same meaning:

$-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{-2}{3}=\frac{2}{-3}$

They would all respond with the decimal value of -0.66666.

Only one warning sign is unfavorable, but it can be located anywhere.

$-\frac{2}{3}\times 12=-8$

$\frac{-2}{3}\times 12=-8$

$\frac{2}{-3}\times 12=-8$

The fraction implies that there will be a division by 3

You can also think of it as $\frac{-2\times 12}{3}=\frac{-24}{3}=-8$

If there were two negative signs, the answer would be positive.

$-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{-2}{3}=\frac{2}{-3}$

You can follow the steps from the question. Anytime a question instructs you to multiply two numbers, it means "x times y". $x\times y=xy$

"Times" means to multiply.

Any whole number is understood to have a denominator of 1; $n=\frac{n}{1}$.

$-\frac{2}{3}\times \frac{12}{1}$

When multiplying fractions, add the denominators and the numerators together.

$-\frac{2}{3}\times \frac{12}{1}=$

$-\frac{2\times 12}{3\times 1}=$

$-\frac{24}{3}$

Simplify $-\frac{24}{3}$ by dividing the numerator and denominator by 3.

$-\frac{24\xf73}{3\xf73}=$

$-\frac{8}{1}=$

-8.
