one of the laws of exponents is that an exponent raised an exponent means you multiply those two exponents. example: (5^3)^3 = 5^(3x3) = 5^9

and another law of exponent is that a negative exponent (n) is that 1/x^n so a (5^3)^-3 = 5^-9 = 1/(5^9)

multiply the exponents first, and if it is negative exponent, you use 1/x^n but since you have two negative numbers, you end up with a positive, therefore you don't need to use 1/x^n
