[ (11/20)^4 x (11/20)^-8]^5

and (11/20)^-6

you cant leave an number to the power of a negative exponent. You have to change it like this ex : 2^-3 = 1/2^3 = 1/8

= [(11/20)^(4-8)]^5

= [(11/20)^-4]^5

= (11/20)^(-4*5)

= (11/20)^-20

= 1/(11/20)^20

= (20/11)^20

(11/20)^-6

= 1/(11/20)^6

= (20/11)^6
