    it doesnt have any variables... you can simplify it down to a real number. 40,000

    also how do you solve: -3(a^2b^-1)^3 {-------------}^-2 7(a^-5b^6) The brackets should cover both equations.

    note that when you take the exponent of an exponent you add ex: (2^2)^2 = 2^4 right off i see the a^2^3 up there which turns into a^5th and you have an a^-5 down in the numerator. start there, and see if that helps any
