Answer. The numerator is 3, the denominator is 4, and the division symbol is -.

Example 2: Find the numerator, denominator, and division symbol for the simple fraction .

Answer. The numerator is -3, the denominator is 8, and the division symbol is -.

Example 3: Find the numerator, denominator, and division symbol for the simple fraction .

Answer. The numerator is 14, the denominator is -9, and the division symbol is -.
