Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0simplify the brackets 1st (1/4 x^4 y^8)^3 so (1/4)^3 x(4 x 3) y^(8x3) = x^12/(64y^8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look at it as small problems inside the brackets... 50/200 = 1/4 x^2/x^2 = x^(2 (2) = x^4 (index law for division, subtract the powers) y^4 /y^4 = y ^(4 4) = y^8 so inside is 1/4 x^4 y ^8 then raise each term to the power of 3
