Well, let's simplify.

When there dividing numbers with the same base but with different exponents, we subtract the second exponent from the first exponent.

(m^2/5) / (m^(-8/5))

Subtract the exponents. 2/5 - (-8/5)

That would be 2/5 + 8/5, which equals to 10/5.

10/5 is 2. So the exponent would be 2.

Our final answer would be m^2
