Assuming that you are multiplying fractions together, you should multiply all the numerators (top number) together, (-5 x 80 x 11), and leave it as the numerator of your answer while you multiply all the denominators (bottom numbers) together, (44 x 3 x 5) and put that as the bottom part of the fraction. Then you have to see if it can be reduced (both the numerator and denominator can be divided by the same number... in this case, it can... by several numbers). If you get all that together, it should work out well. If not, let me know :-)
