#1**0 **

Both of these numbers are negative, so for the sake of ease, let's multiply both by -1 to make the equation 8 / 2/5.

First, let's make 8 into a fraction.

8/1 / 2/5

Now, use "keep, change, flip."

Keep 8/1...

Change the division sign into a multiplication sign...

8/1 * 2/5

And flip 2/5 into 5/2 (the reciprocal).

Now we have 8/1 * 5/2.

What we'll do is multiply the numerators together to find the solution's numerator and the denominators to find the solution's denominator.

8*5 = 40

1*2 = 2

We get 40/2. This can be simplified into 20/1, or just plain 20.

In conclusion, **-8 / -2/5 = 20**.
