well first of all if I gave you the answer it would be cheating. but I will show you a better way to do the problem. seven plus two thirds is easy. It is seven and two thirds. now times that by negative one . remember your integer rules. Positive times a positive is equal to positive. negative times positive is negative is but a negative times a negative is a positive. b so seven and two thirds times negative one is negative seven and one thirds. I hope that I could have been of some assistance to your problem. Remember to work the problem one step at a time. If you look at the whole problem you will get confused. look at segments than put it all together. good luck.

The quotient of a positive integer by a negative is always negative. Say this to yourself a couple times: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

I honestly don't know :D but heres something to help you "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"
