Step by Step Explanation: 1. $\frac{12}{-\frac{1}{3}}$ Exp. Writing the question in a factorial form. 2. $(12\times(-\frac{3}{1}))$ Exp. Reciprocal Rule of Devision. While dividing fractions, the numerator can be multiplied with the reciprocal of the denominator. 3. $(12\times-3)$ Exp. Three(3) divided by Negative One(-1) is equal to Negative 3(-3), then use PEMDAS to solve the inner most pair of parentheses. 4. $-(12\times3)$ Exp. $Pos \times Neg=Neg$ 5. $-(36)$ Exp. Multiplying the numbers within the parenthesis 6. $-36$ Exp. PEMDAS
