Answer:

-8

Explanation:

8 goes into 64 8 times
division or multiplication between negative and positive numbers go like this

if both numbers are positive then the resulting answer will be positive.
if both numbers are negative then the resulting number will also be positive.
if one is negative and the other is positive then the number stays negative
#+,+=+#
#-,-= +#
#-,+= -#
#+,-= -#
64 is positive and -8 is negative (shown by the negative sign)
this one is positive negative resulting in a negative answer.
