Answer

$-\frac{7}{8}$

Work Step by Step

First, we multiply the numerators by each other and the denominators by each other: $\frac{3}{4}\times-\frac{14}{12}=-\frac{3\times14}{4\times12}=-\frac{42}{48}$ Next, we simplify the resultant expression to obtain the answer: $-\frac{42}{48}=-\frac{21\times2}{24\times2}=-\frac{21}{24}=-\frac{7\times3}{8\times3}=-\frac{7}{8}$
