I will solve it for you! The expression I will evaluate is $$\left(\frac{-2}{3}\right)^2$$:

 $$\left(\frac{-2}{3}\right)^2$$ When you raise a fraction by an exponent, you distribute that exponent to both the numerator and denominator. $$\frac{(-2)^2}{3^2}$$ Simplify both the numerator and denominator. $$\frac{4}{9}=0.\overline{44}$$

By the way, if you would like to type it into a calculator, do it like this: (-2/3)^2. The calculator will output 0.444...
