Answer

$\dfrac{-\dfrac{7}{8y}}{\dfrac{21}{4y}}=-\dfrac{1}{6}$

Work Step by Step

$\dfrac{-\dfrac{7}{8y}}{\dfrac{21}{4y}}$ Evaluate the division and simplify if possible: $\dfrac{-\dfrac{7}{8y}}{\dfrac{21}{4y}}=-\dfrac{7}{8y}\div\dfrac{21}{4y}=-\dfrac{7(4y)}{21(8y)}=-\dfrac{7(4)}{21(8)}=-\dfrac{7}{21(2)}=...$ $...=-\dfrac{7}{42}=-\dfrac{1}{6}$
