-1/3 x -6/7 = 1 x 6 = 6 divided by 3 x 7= 21
divide both sides by 3 to reduce it = 2/7 and the sign is positive (SINCE TWO NEGATIVES multiplied = a positive)
which kind of makes sense, right, if have 6 of these sevenths,
and you want to have one third of them
that means 6/2 = 3 or 3 sevenths is a third of six sevenths...
Three sevenths is .4286, one third is .3333, three sevenths is larger.
negative one ninth
Multiplying a quantity by negative one just changes the sign of the quantity. Multiplying a positive one third by negative one makes it negative one third. -1/3
negative 2,000. =
negative one and two fifths
negative two thirds = -2/3

Well, firstly, the LCM (Lowest Common Multiple) of 3 and 7 is 21. Try to convert those fractions into fractions with denominators of 21. Multiply 3x7 in one thirds and 1x7, which changes one third to seven twenty-oneths. Multiply 7x3 in two sevenths and 2x3, which changes two sevenths to six twenty-oneths. Therefore, one third (seven twenty-oneths) is greater than two sevenths (six twenty-oneths).
