x = -8 y = 12
I was told to calculate the rate of x according to y, and viceversa. So what I did was divide them.
x/y = -0.66 y/x = -1.5
My question is rather straightforward: Is this right?
I am just unsure if there can be negative rates. For instance, I though that since
y is greater than
y I would get a positive rate.
