Answer : There is no as such difference between -2/3 or 2/-3 because we generally take the signs aside n solve it , i.e 
=> -2/3 = 2/-3 = -(2/3)

these are fractional numbers in the form of p/q  ( q not equal to 0) n for our convenience we can show them on number ine taking the divisions of the interval such that to plot 2/3 or -2/3 or any other fractional value.
