(x^6y^-5)(x^2y^4)^-3
---------------------------
(xy^2)^-1

Could someone help me on this question step by step? Thanks.
I'm not sure if I do (x^2*-3)(y^4*-3) first.

My answer's different from kuyabaka. Kuyabaka didn't distribute the ^3 exponent.

Forgot the negative exponent wasn't "-1". .-.;

Thanks, that's what I thought since you just flip the numbers and the negative exponents go away.

I can't seem to read these numbers on the computer screen. Does (x^6y^-5) mean x to the power of 6y to the power of -5? or x to the power of 6 multiplied by y to the power of -5? Numbers look so confusing

It's the latter.
I just can't see powers or powers going on much in Algebra I or II.

I'd spread out the terms and use asterisks (*) to multiply between them. Keeps them nice and spaced out. Text isn't the best way to demonstrate math. :X

He typed it as if he typed it in a graphing calculator.

If you try to do x^2*3, it'll look like (x^2)*3.
If you want to do the other confusing way that you guys are mentioning, you would do x^(2*3).
