i suppose it a mixed fraction : 

ok : 

 5 1/3 (-3 9/18) =  (((3*5)+1)/3)*(((-3*18 + 9)/18))

                        =   (16/3)*(63/18) = 1008/54 = 56/3

as a mixed fraction we  56/3 = 18 2/3


please each time you have any other homework invite me first i will give you the best answer  


Good Luck
