# Solve for: (-3)/(4) \times (-2)/(5)

## Expression: $\frac{ -3 }{ 4 } \times \frac{ -2 }{ 5 }$

Use $\frac{ -a }{ b }=\frac{ a }{ -b }=-\frac{ a }{ b }$ to rewrite the fraction

$-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 } \times \frac{ -2 }{ 5 }$

Use $\frac{ -a }{ b }=\frac{ a }{ -b }=-\frac{ a }{ b }$ to rewrite the fraction

$-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 } \times \left( -\frac{ 2 }{ 5 } \right)$

Multiplying two negatives equals a positive: $\left( - \right) \times \left( - \right)=\left( + \right)$

$\frac{ 3 }{ 4 } \times \frac{ 2 }{ 5 }$

Cancel out the greatest common factor $2$

$\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } \times \frac{ 1 }{ 5 }$

Multiply the fractions

\begin{align*}&\frac{ 3 }{ 10 } \\&0.3\end{align*}
