    \[\frac{(m^4z^3)^{-2}}{(m^5z)^{-1}}\]?

    you can start any way you like, but maybe the simplest method is to flip everything and make the exponents positive

    \[\frac{(m^5z)}{(m^4z^3)^2}\]

    now multiply each exponent in the denominator by 2

    then cancel away \[\frac{1}{m^3z^5}\] will finish it

    thanks! I had forgotten about the flipping around and was trying to do it the original way which was much more confusing
