Question

Given 4 and 1 over 10 times negative three times 5 over 12, determine the product.

negative twelve and 5 over 120
twelve and 5 over 60
negative five and 1 over 8
five and 1 over 8

1. The value of the expression given as 4 and 1 over 10 times negative three times 5 over 12 is negative five and 1 over 8

### How to determine the product of the expression?

The product statement is given as:
4 and 1 over 10 times negative three times 5 over 12
Rewrite the statement properly.
This is represented as:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12
Express the mixed number as an improper fraction
So, we have:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12 = 41/10 * -3 * 5/12
Divide 10 and 5 by 5
So, we have:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12 = 41/2 * -3 * 1/12
Divide 3 and 12 by 4
So, we have:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12 = 41/2 * -1 * 1/4
Multiply 1 and -1
So, we have:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12 = 41/2 * -1/4
Multiply 2 and 4
So, we have:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12 = 41/8 * -1
Multiply 41 and -1
So, we have:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12 = -41/8
Express the improper fraction as a mixed number
So, we have:
4 1/10 * -3 * 5/12 = – 5 1/8
This can be rewritten as:
negative five and 1 over 8
Hence, the value of the expression given as 4 and 1 over 10 times negative three times 5 over 12 is negative five and 1 over 8
