    take each variable or constant step by step... (-5)^3 * (a^3)^3 * (b^-2)^3 if there are 2 exponents they get multiplied... and for (-5)^3 multiply -5 thrice by itself.. so it becomes -125a^9 b^-6

    yes....or you can even write 64^-1 since the sign changes when u make it a reciprocal(when numerator becomes denomerator or denominaator becomes numerator..)
