It is -1/5

Not necessarily. 5 + (-6) = -1, a negative 5 + (-5) = 0 or 5 + (-4) = 1, a positive.

-4 + -5 + -2 + -1 = -12 (negative 12).

Because -4 / -20 = 1/5 & -1/5 = -1/5 Remember negative divided by negative is a positive number & negative divided by a positive is a negative number.

Negative exponents mean the reciprocal. 5^(-5) = 1/(5^5)=1/3125
