    Post your questions in Decimals,Precents,Fractions section (you and all your user names, I still do not appreciate you lying to me in the PM).

    -\frac{375}{60}=-7\frac{3}{4}

    Hello,

    it doesn't matter where you put the negative sign:

    \frac{375}{-60}=\frac{-375}{60}=-\frac{375}{60}
