$-96$

#### Work Step by Step

We start with the given expression: $\frac{6}{5}\times(-10\times8)$ The associative property of multiplication states that changing the grouping of the factors does not affect the product. We use this property to group the factors differently: $(\frac{6}{5}\times(-10))\times8$ We use the order of operations to simplify: First, we multiply inside the parentheses: $-12\times8$ Then, we multiply: $-96$
