There looks like an unmatched parenthesee right before the 3...I think it's supposed to go at the end

 

( (-2)3+42 ) / ( 3 - (52 + 3*6) )

 

( -8 + 16 ) / ( 3 - (25 + 18) )

 

8 / ( 3 - 43 )

 

8 / -40

 

- 1/5

 

And -1/5 = -0.2

 

If you put it in like this: ((-2)^3+4^2)/(3-(5^2+3*6)) it should tell you the fraction -1/5 and the decimal -0.2...If you don't put the parenthesee at the end it just tells you the decimal answer
