Please help? I still dont understand? ):

I couldnt figure out how to put it in the equation I needed to solve it? ):
I'll do a similar example (just with different numbers) \[\Large \left(-2w^{5}x^{-8}\right)^{4}\] \[\Large \left(-2\right)^{4}\left(w^{5}\right)^{4}\left(x^{-8}\right)^{4}\] \[\Large \left((-2)^{1}\right)^{4}\left(w^{5}\right)^{4}\left(x^{-8}\right)^{4}\] \[\Large (-2)^{1*4}w^{5*4}x^{-8*4}\] \[\Large (-2)^{4}w^{20}x^{-32}\] \[\Large (-2)^{4}w^{20}\frac{1}{x^{32}}\] \[\Large 16w^{20}\frac{1}{x^{32}}\] \[\Large \frac{16w^{20}}{x^{32}}\]
So would I get (-3w^3/x^6)^3 ?
Keep going. So far, so good.
Theres still another step? o:
Yes there are more steps.
How would you work it out to get to the next step though? I understand that.
You would apply the outermost exponent to each term inside
In other words, you would cube each piece.
So basically would it be, (-3w^3/x^6) times (-3w^3/x^6) times (-3w^3/x^6) ?
Yes pretty much
So that explains why, for instance, in the denominator you will have x^6*x^6*x^6 = x^(6+6+6) = x^(18)
A shortcut is to use this rule \[\Large (x^m)^n = x^{m*n}\]
So would I get for my answer to that is -27w^9/x^18 ?
You are 100% correct. Nice work.
Nicee! Haa, So thats my answer? xD
Yes it is.
Awesome, Thank you so much jim_thompson5910 ! (:
you're welcome
