How do you multiply a fraction by a negative number?

Using the same principles as multiplying a negative whole number by a positive whole number, where the result would be a negative, the product of a (positive) fraction and a negative whole number would equal the product of the two, with the minus sign included. For example, 1/2 x -4 = -2. The same rule can be applied the other way around, multiplying a negative fraction by a positive number would produce the same result.

How do you you reduce a fraction with a negative number as a numerator?

Reduce it as you would normally, negative fractions are no different to positive fractions. Also, it doesn't matter which of the numerator or denominator are negative, as long as when it is reduced the fraction is negative overall.

How do you subtract a negative fraction from a negative fraction?

In the same way that you would answer a fraction subtract another fraction. The result could be either positive or negative, just as is the case with negative whole numbers.

How do you simplify a fraction with a negative number on the top?

like you would with a regular faction. just keep the negative at the top once you have simlified it

How would you add a negative number and a fraction?

Deduct negative from positive. for example 2 1/4 +-2=1/4.

How would you graph -3.4 on a number line graph?

On a number line, the positive numbers extend to the right of zero, and the negative numbers extend to the left of zero. So -3.4 is 3.4 to the left of zero.

Is a negative number added to a negative number positive or negative?

The answer to a problem that has a negative number added to a negative number would be negative.It would be a negative

Can acceleration ever be negative?

Acceleration is negative when the object is moving in the opposite direction. on a graph the line would be in the negative quadrant.

What would a graph that has a negative slope show?

It would have a downhill slope from left to right

What is the negative reciprocal of a slope?

The negative reciprocal of any gradient gives the gradient of the line perpendicular to it. If you had a line of gradient 2, the negative reciprocal would be -1/2 Just change the sign on the number and flip the number/fraction to get the negative reciprocal.

How do you divide negative mixed number?

The first stage in dividing by a negative mixed number would be to convert that number into a top-heavy or vulgar fraction. Once this has been done, you ignore the negative sign for the time being, and multiply the number by the denominator. After this, you divide by the numerator. Finally, you swap the sign of the number you started with. If you were dividing a negative number the answer is positive. If you were dividing a positive number the answer is negative.

How would a graph of negative and positive acceleration differ?

This depends on what the graph represents. If it is a graph of velocity on the vertical and time on the horizontal, then if acceleration is at a constant rate, the graph will be a straight line with positive slope (pointing 'up'). If acceleration stops, then the graph will be a horizontal line (zero acceleration or deceleration). If it is deceleration (negative acceleration), then the graph will have negative slope (pointing down).

Does a negative line have a different slope than a positive one?

Yes. If the fraction is the same, the negative slope would have at least one negative number, while the positive would have both positive numbers. I'm pretty sure. :)

Would a line graph or bar graph be better for showing the number of birds of each color in a population?

a bar graph because the line graph shows something in a period of time. Also a bar graph would show the number of birds and the color of them at the time while a line graph would show only the number of birds and the time.

The graph of velocity versus time for an object with a constant negative acceleration would be?

The line would decrease as the time increased and it would stop once it touched the X axis because you cannot have a negative velocity. This graph would represent an inverse relationship between velocity and negative acceleration/

Multiplying a number by what would result in a smaller number?

a proper fraction, a decimal or a negative number.

How many degrees will the USA section be in a circle graph?

That depends on what your graph is showing about the USA, compared to the other countries. Your graph may be showing fraction of world population, fraction of world GDP, fraction of world energy consumption, fraction of the world's Jews, fraction of the world's oil production, fraction of world oil refineries, etc. The USA section on each one would be different.

When dividing negative number by a positive number what is the results?

A negative number divided by a positive number will be a negative number. For example: -20 / 4 = -5 -100 / 2 = -50 Here are the other cases of division by positive or negative numbers. A negative number divided by a negative number would be a positive number. A positive number divided by a positive number would be a positive number. A positive number divided by a negative number would be a negative number.

Which type of graph would you use to show the number of pages in each book on the shelf and what graph?

bar graph

If a is a negative number what would -a be?

If a i positive, -a is negative; if a is negative, -a is positive.

When you multiply a positive number by a negative by a negative one what is the sign of the answer?

A negative times a positive is a negative and that negative times a negative would = a positive. So the answer would be a positive number. *<:)

When converting a negative fraction into a decimal is the decimal positive or negative?

The decimal would be negative. Ex: -2/3 is -0.67

What fraction divided by what mixed number equals to a whole number?

It would be an improper fraction.

How do you make a negative fraction to a decimal?

You convert the fraction do decimal exactly as you would a positive fraction. Then you stick a minus sign in front.
