Check this problem for me do I have negative sign right with the answer.

-1(-1)+-5-5=-2/-10==-1/5

the one on top and the -1(-1) and on the bottom is -5-5.
so check this answer for me. Please, Please

asked by Elaine
  1. Is -5-5 supposed to be the product of -5 and -5? What is the meaning of == ?
    Where did the -2/-10 come from? It does not equal -1/5, in any case.
