    Add the coefficients and variables of your terms.

    you would have \[5x^5*x^8*2y^10\rightarrow (5x^13)(2y^10)\] x^5*x^8=x^13 that is how i got x^13 then just put everything back together and you get 5x^13*2y^10

    forgot to multiply the coefficients so you would get 10x^13*y^10

    so we have \[k^3(k^\frac{ 7 }{ 3 })^-5 \rightarrow (k^\frac{ 16 }{ 3 })^-5\] so we have [k^(16/3)]^-5

    for the problem you wrote down are we trying to simplify k^3*(k^7/3)^-5 ? or did i get it wrong because none of the answers you posted did i get
