    I have the answer for this one -> 1/p^(1/6) but I don't know how to get to that answer...

    \[p^{-\frac{2}{3}} / p^{\frac{5}{6}} = p^{-\frac{2}{3} - \frac{5}{6}}\]\[=p^{-\frac{3}{2}} = 1/{p^{\frac{3}{2}}}\] That's what I get.

    Coincidentally, this gives the answer you have.. \[p^\frac{2}{3}/ p^\frac{5}{6}\]
