    well I'd apply the index laws inside the brackets 1st. and start with the numerator of the fraction. for multiplication, add the power \[x^a \times x^b = x^{a \times b}\] next you'll need the law for division, subtract the powers \[\frac{x^a}{x^b} = x^{a - b}\] then looking at the power of a power, multiply the powers \[(x^a)^b = x^{a \times b}\] I hope this helps you get the solution.
