Textbook Problem

Perform the indicated operations and simplify:

To determine

**To calculate:** The simplified form of the expression

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The provided expression is:

**Formula used:**

Equivalent signed fractions:

The equivalent signed fraction shows that a negative fraction can be written in three different but equivalent forms.

Where,

In case of

Adding and subtracting combinations of signed numbers includes:

Adding two numbers with unlike signs includes:

And,

Dividing two signed numbers includes:

**Calculation:**

Consider the expression:

First, change the given expression to customary form. That is,

The absolute values of the signed numbers will be divided. The quotient will be positive because the two numbers have the same sign.

In case of combinations of additions and subtractions of signed numbers, only the sign of each number being subtracted must be changed
