(iv) -3/17 by -5/-4

2. Find the product of each of the following:

(i) 3/5 × (-7)/8

(ii) (-9)/2 × 5/4

(iii) (-6)/11 × 5/3

(iv) (-2)/3 × 6/7

(v) (-12)/5 × 10/-3

(vi) 25/-9 × 3/-10

(vii) 5/-18 × -9/20

(viii) (-13)/15 × (-25)/26

(ix) 16/-21 × 14/5

(x) (-7)/6 × 24

(xi) 7/24 × (-48)

(xii) (-13)/5 × (-10)

3. Find the reciprocal of:

(i) 13/25

(ii) (-17)/12
