It's the same thing principle: \[\frac{ -6 }{ 11 }*\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }=\frac{ -6*3 }{ 11*4 }=\frac{ ? }{ ? }\]

you might want to check the solutions that your wrote though, or the question, cause the correct answer to the question you wrote isn't there

but yes that is right. So what divides both -18 and 44?

okay, whatever divides 18, also divides -18 so what divides 18 and 44 (hint they are both even numbers)

not quite, 6 doesn't divide into 44. (it divides into 42 and 48 but not 44)

11

nope, because 11 doesn't divide into 18. (hint it's quite a small number this time)

yes! so if you have: \[\frac{ -18\div2 }{ 44\div2 }=\frac{ ? }{ ? }\] what do you get?

9 and 22

exactly. though the 9 will be negative (as it was -18)
