a this is the same thing as raising 4/3^2. So by flipping the fraction I can just square as you would normally. (4/3)^2 is 16/9. The same thing as 3/4^2

flipping the first fraction means instead of raising to a power of 2, you can just raise to a power of 2. so 4/3^2 is16/9.

I think that with b the best thing is this. 6^1 / 3 x 6^5/6 ? this is the expression yes?

So bring the ^5/6 up to the numerator. And subtract. Giving 6^11/6 divided by 3. So this finishes up being 2 ^11/6.
