solve (-2/3) squared. I did not want to change to decimal.

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...
