thats hard to decipher into a problem... can you re write it better or explain it more?
is this it? \[\frac{(a^{-5b})^{-4}}{ab^3}\]
the slash after the 4 is actually indicative of the fraction. wasn't sure how to write that

Other answers:

yes that is it
exponents of exponents multiply together... a^(20b) ------- ab^3
division of like bases subtrats exponents: a^b --- = a^(b-c) a^c
a^(20b-1) --------- seems to be the best I can get from it... b^3
what constitutes a simplification ?
I got a^20 over ab^-12 but not sure if I did it right
is there a choice of answers to base this off of?
no
its hard to write equation on here lol
we could try log rules.... maybe :) 20b log(a) - log(a) + 3log(b)...not sure how that would help tho :)
the equation editor on the bottom left helps alittle
its my first time using this site
takes a little to get used to but its handy at times
it slows down the computer tho... lol
I noticed. I tried to use the equation template but it got confusing
you can make a fraction by typing 'frac{top}{bottom}' into it directly
exponents are ^{number}
\[(a^-5b)^-4 \ab^3\]
oops that didn't come out right
sooo close.....
type it in like like this: frac{a^{-5b}^{-4}}{ab^3}
I have to go...phone
thanks for your help :)
