  1.  [tex]-\frac{p}{8}[/tex]

    This is the fraction -p/8

    ====================================================

    Explanation:

    When we divide by -16, we're really multiplying by -1/16. Fractions and division are very similar ideas.

    So we can say,

    [tex]2p \div -16 = 2p \times \frac{-1}{16}\\\\2p \div -16 = \frac{2p}{1} \times \frac{-1}{16}\\\\2p \div -16 = \frac{2p(-1)}{1*16}\\\\2p \div -16 = \frac{-2p}{16}\\\\2p \div -16 = \frac{-2p}{2*8}\\\\2p \div -16 = -\frac{p}{8}\\\\[/tex]

    The second to last step has a pair of '2's divide and cancel out.

    Another way to think of it is to consider

    [tex]\frac{a}{b} \div \frac{c}{d} = \frac{a}{b} \times \frac{d}{c}[/tex]

    The flip from division to multiplication has us apply the reciprocal of the second fraction. In this problem, we have a = 2p, b = 1, c = -16 and d = 1. The steps will be very similar if not identical to what is shown above.

  2. Hire more Game Guides(B)

    In the passage they state, that the workers cannot keep up with the large amount of players. In order to fix this problem it is best to fire more Game Guides.
    Also, the other answers do not make sense.

    Hope this helps!!
