    You mean,
    -25\frac{22}{25}
    So you need to mutiply the whole number by denominator and and then add numerator,
    -25\times 25+22=-625+22=-603
    Thus you have,
    -\frac{603}{25}

    i think i posted it wrong. the problem looks like -25^ {22}{25} the answer is - ^647 with a line then 25 under that

    "-25^{22}{25}" does not make much sense, but then nor does the answer
    you quote - ^647 over 25.

    Actually that would be -25*25 - 22 = -647 so

    -\frac{647}{25}
