Question 330250: Hi,
I'm a little confuse with this one:
(2x exponent 3 y exponent of -3 /x exponent of -2 y exponent of 3) exponent outside of parenthesis -5
(2x3y-3)outside exponent of parenthesis -5
Pls. note the x3 = x with exponent of 3
y-3 = exponent of -3
x-2 = exponent of -2
y3 = expnonent of 3
-5 is outside of entire parenthesis.

And you didn't say, but the only thing I can think you might want is to simplify this, so:
Move negative exponent items from numerator to denominator and vice versa (leave the -5 exponent alone for the time being). The negative exponents become positive when they move, and then you just add the exponents for like variables.
Now remove the negative sign from the -5 exponent and invert the fraction inside the parentheses:
Raising a power to a power, multiply the exponents:
To the extent that I rendered your problem as you intended, you should have written:

My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
