#### Answer

$-5/32$

#### Work Step by Step

To multiply fractions, you multiply the numerators and divide the resulting product by the product of the denominators. Doing this will get you $-10/64$ because a negative multiplied by a positive is a negative. You then simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by two, and you will end up with $-5/32$.
