Well, -90 would obviously be the whole number. So, [latex]-90 \frac{unknown}{unknown} [/latex]. And now, 85 would be a part, so that would be the numerator. The last number of 85, 5, is in the hundredth place, so the denominator would be 100. Which would get us, [latex]-90 \frac{85}{100} [/latex] Now simplify. 5 can go into both numbers. 85/5 = 17 100/5 = 20 So you get [latex] \frac{17}{20} [/latex] Your final answer is [latex]-90 \frac{17}{20} [/latex]
