The expression is $\frac{8c^{5}d^{-4}e^{2}}{11}$

Work Step by Step

The expression $\frac{8c^{5}}{11d^{4}e^{-2}}$ can be written with all the variables in the numerator; as we bring the d to the numerator, the sign of the exponent changes from positive to negative, and as we bring e to the numerator, the sign changes from negative to positive. $\frac{8c^{5}}{11d^{4}e^{-2}}$ = $\frac{8c^{5}d^{-4}e^{2}}{11}$
