Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:5 divided by (-3)Step-by-step explanation:5 3/4 is equals to:[tex]\frac{5*4}{4} + \frac{3}{4} = \frac{23}{4}[/tex].-3 3/8 is equals to:[tex]\frac{-3*8}{8} - \frac{3}{8} = -\frac{27}{8}[/tex].The division of two fractions is the multiplication of the first one divided by the inverse of the second one. So:[tex]\frac{\frac{23}{4}}{-\frac{27}{8}} = -\frac{23}{4}*\frac{8}{27} = \frac{46}{27} = 1.70[/tex]As for the answers, we have that:6 divided by (-3) is -2.6 divided by (-4) is -1.5.5 divided by (-3) is -1.67.5 divided by (-4) is -1.25.So the best estimation for -1.70 is:5 divided by (-3)
