To evaluate the expression (- \frac { 3} { 5} ) ( - \frac { 8} { 15} ) \div ( - 1\frac { 1} { 5} ), follow these steps:

Step 1: Multiply the numerators together and the denominators together. Step 2: Divide the result of the multiplication by the given divisor.

(- \frac { 3} { 5} ) ( - \frac { 8} { 15} ) = \frac {3 \times 8} {5 \times 15} = \frac {24} {75}

Now, divide \frac {24} {75} by - 1\frac { 1} { 5}.

- 1\frac { 1} { 5} = - \frac {6} {5}

So, \frac {24} {75} \div (- \frac {6} {5}) = \frac {24} {75} \times (- \frac {5} {6}) = - \frac {24 \times 5} {75 \times 6} = - \frac {4} {5}

Therefore, the value of the expression is - \frac {4} {5}.
