Move the minus sign from the denominator to the front of the expression.

`-5/3 * 4 * -(2)/(-9)`


Move the minus sign from the denominator to the front of the expression.

`-5/3 * 4 * (2/9)`


Multiply `-5` by `4` to get `-20` .

`-(20)/3 * (2/9)`


Multiply all the factors in `-5/3*4*(2/9)`

`(-20 (2/9))/3`


Multiply `-20/3`  by `2/9`  to get `-40/27`  

Thus, the answer is
`-40/27`
