the bottom part will be 6-(7) = -1 so whatever you get atop, just negativize it

that is the correct problem now. sorry about that

OpenStudy (jdoe0001):

all numbers atop are positive, the denominator is negative the answer will surely be a negative number, no 216 though the numerator can be narrowed down to 8 x 220 x 60 and that's a really big figure, much bigger than 216

8x9x60 divied by 6 - 7 is 713

that is the wrong problem i typed..

OpenStudy (jdoe0001):

ahemm, 6-7 is a denominator in itself, so that's -1, 6-7

9? I gather you meant to use 20-11, as opposed to 20 x 11 then

ok but its not 8x220
