\[\frac{ -5 }{ 8 }\div \frac{ 9 }{ 10 }\] So since we are dividing by fractions you want to multiply by the reciprocal so it would become \[\frac{ -5 }{ 8 }\times \frac{ 10 }{ 9 }\] which would then multiply to become \[\frac{ -50 }{ 72 }\] This value can be simplified to\[\frac{ -25 }{ 36 }\] which would make the answer A
