#### Answer

$\frac{8c^5\cdot d^{-4} \cdot e^2}{11}$

#### Work Step by Step

For any variable with a negative exponent, you can flip the variable onto the other side of the fraction (numerator to denominator or denominator to numerator) and change the negative exponent to a positive exponent. For any variable with a positive exponent, if you flip the variable onto the other side of the fraction, you will change the positive exponent into a negative exponent. $\frac{8c^5}{11d^4e^{-2}} = \frac{8c^5 *d^{-4}}{11e^{-2}} = \frac{8c^5*d^{-4}*e^2}{11}$
