Hint: Simplify the top using BODMAS, simplify the bottom, then divide.
that is what i did i got -50 for the top and -30 for the bottom (14*(-3) - 18)/(5(-6)) = -50/-30 and then i reduced it by dividing by 10
14(-3) - 18 = -42 - 18 = -60, not -50.
oh, so the answer is 2 and i am also having trouble with this one, for this i got -26/9 is that right?
Correct. Well done.
