Thanks!Answer by solver91311(16897)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! I think you are trying to render: 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: ((2x^3y^(-3))/(x^(-2)y^3))^(-5). Furthermore, next time tell us what it is that you actually want, and what is giving you trouble. This is Algebra.com, not the Psychic Hot Line. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
