    divide both sides by -5/6 is the way i'd do -7/8 / -5/6 = 42/40 = 21/10 = 2 .1

    (-5*8)=(6x*-7) -40 = -42x -40\-42 =x -0.952 = x

    x must be 21/20, you can check by plugging it back in to (-5/6) * (21/20) whhich should give u -7/8.

    to divide -7/8 by -5/6 you turn -5/6 over to give -6/5 then you multiply -7/8 X -6/5 = 42/40
