You need to use the order of operations here which is a little difficult given how we have to write the math at this site.

I am understanding that 20(-2-3) is the numerator which would be 20(-5) or -100

The denominator is

-3[4 -(-2)] - 4(-3)

-3 [4+2] -4(-3)

-3(6) -4(-3)

-18 + 12

-6

Can you finish from here?

20(-2-3) divided by -3[4-(-2)]-4(-3)

= 20(-5) ÷ [ -3[4+2] + 12]

= -100 ÷ [ -18 + 12]

= -100/-6

= 50/3 or 16.666... or 16 2/3
