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

To reduce a fraction with a negative number as a numerator, you can first simplify the fraction by finding the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator and denominator. Then, divide both the numerator and denominator by their GCD and the negative sign remains unchanged. This will result in a reduced fraction with a negative numerator.
