$\frac{\frac{1}{8}}{\frac{-5}{12}}$ = -$\frac{3}{10}$
$\frac{\frac{1}{8}}{\frac{-5}{12}}$ $\frac{1}{8}$ x $\frac{12}{-5}$ Rewrite using multiplication (multiply numerator by reciprocal of $\frac{-5}{12}$) $\frac{12}{-40}$ Multiply 12x1 to get 12 for numerator, and 8 x -5 to get -40 for the denominator $\frac{-3}{10}$ Simplify to get final answer.
