First you know that when two negative numbers multiply/divide each other, the negative signs cancel out, so you can disregard those. Second, when you divide a fraction, it is the same as multiply the reciprocal, therefore, your new equation is: 1/8 * 4/5 which equals 4/40. Since they want it in simplest term, you simplify that by 4 and get 1/10 =)

-1/8/-5/4 =the numerator of the first value will be multiplied by the denominator of the second i.e 1*4 and similarly 8 will be multiplied by 5 like this -1/8 * -4/5 this will give 1/10 or 0.1 which is actually the right answer
