How would the instructor come up with this answer?
11/5with a exponet of 2 = 96%

1  (1/5)^2 = 96%
1  (1/25) = 96%
(25/25)  (1/25) = 96%
(24/25) = 96%
0.96 = 96%
(0.96) 100% = 96%
96% = 96% 
11/5with a exponet of 2 = 96%
I'm not sure how to interpret your data. You can indicate an exponent by putting this symbol (^) before the exponent. This what I assume:
1  1/5^2 = 1  .2^2 = 1  .04 = .96 = 96%
However, from the way you stated your question, it could be:
(1  1/5)^2 = (4/5)^2 = .8^2 = .64
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
