    The other number is 4/5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    let the number be x

    if one of the numbers is -14/5

    The sum of two rational numbers is -2.

    Here, we get the equation

    x + (-14/5) = -2

    x – 14/5 = -2

    x = 14/5 – 2

    x = 14 – 2 × 5 ÷ 5

    x = 14 – 10 ÷ 5

    x = 4/5

    Thus, The other number is 4/5

    FOR VERIFICATION ONLY:

    x + (-14/5) = -2

    4/5 + (-14/5) = -2

    4/5 – 14/5 = -2

    4 – 14/5 = -2

    -10/5 = -2

    -2 = -2

    Hence, L.H.S = R.H.S
