    (a^x)^y = a^(xy) also, (m/n) *(p/q) = mp/nq

    no, you dont plug anything anywhere. I was just showing rules of how exponents and multiplying fractions work.

    (x^3/5)^7/6 = x^(3/5)*(7/6) so since (3/5)*(7/6) = (21/30) = (7/10) the answer is x^(7/10)

    the rules is " a raised to the power x raised to the power y is equal to a raised to the power product of x and y"

    so say if it was switched to (x^5/3)^9/4 it would be 45/12 = 15/4

    yes that would be correct x^(15/4)

    to check this...plug a number into your calculator for x. lets say x=5, so (5^5/3)^9/4 = 417.9626906 now plug 5 into what you think is the correct answer of x^(15/4) 5^(15/4) also equals 417.9626906 so your answer checks
