    simple fraction

    I have no idea why this is troubling me, I think I have had a memory lapse.
    -4+30/7
    I seem to recall you put the left-most fraction into a mixed numeral and then you split the -4 into a mixed number being -3 and 7/7...but this does not give the right answer...

     -4+\frac{30}{7}

     \frac{-28}{7}+\frac{30}{7}

     \frac{-28+30}{7}
