    The sign of the value of x is positive.

    The equation is \frac{y}{3} = -6 where y = -18.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1:

    If two positive or negative values are multiplied the resulting number would be positive. Whereas, if two values with different symbols are multiplied, the resulting value will be negative.

    (x) (-2) = -14, x = \frac{-14}{-2} = 7.

    If -2 is multiplied with x and the resulting value is -14, the value of x is positive. the value of x is 7.

    Step 2:

    Assume the amount is y. If y is divided into three equal groups, there would be three groups of 6.

    So \frac{y}{3} = -6, y = (-6)(3) = -18.

    So there were -18 units to start with which was divided into 3 groups of -6 each.
