By what number should we multiply $\frac {-8}{15}$ , so that the product may be 24.

$\frac {-8}{15} \times 24= -45$

What should be subtracted from $\frac {-3}{4}$ so as to get $\frac{5}{9}$ ?

$\frac {-3}{4} - \frac{5}{9}= \frac { -3 \times 9 - 4 \times 5}{36}= \frac {-47}{36}$

Subtract $\frac {-3}{8}$ from $\frac {-5}{7}$

$\frac {-5}{7} - \frac {-3}{8}= \frac {-5 \times 8 + 3 \times 7}{56}=\frac {-19}{56}$

The cost of $4\frac{1}{2}$ meters of cloth is Rs. $85\frac{1}{2}$ find the cost of one meter cloth.

$85\frac{1}{2} \div 4\frac{1}{2}= \frac {170}{2} \div \frac {9}{2} = \frac {170}{2} \times \frac {2}{9} = \frac {170}{9} = 18 \frac {8}{9}$

Simplify $(\frac {-5}{8} \times \frac {3}{7} \times \frac {4}{-15})+(\frac {4}{7} \times \frac {-21}{8})$.

$(\frac {-5}{8} \times \frac {3}{7} \times \frac {4}{-15})+(\frac {4}{7} \times \frac {-21}{8})= \frac {1}{14} + \frac {-3}{2} = \frac {-20}{14} = \frac {-10}{7}$

A stairway consists of 14 stairs, each $32\frac{5}{7}$ cm high. What is the vertical height of the stairways ?

$ 14 \times 32\frac{5}{7}= 14 \times \frac {224}{7} = 448$ cm

Arrange the rational numbers $\frac {-7}{10}$,$\frac {5}{-8}$,$\frac {2}{-3}$ in the ascending order.

Converting them into same denominator by using LCM

$\frac {-7}{10}= \frac {-84}{120}$

$\frac {5}{-8}=\frac {-75}{120}$

$\frac {2}{-3}= \frac {-80}{120}$

So Ascending order will be

$\frac {-84}{120}$ < \frac {-80}{120} < \frac {-75}{120}$

$\frac {-7}{10} < \frac {2}{-3} < \frac {5}{-8}$
