    well I am pretty sure (9^(-6))^3 doesn't equal 9 is there some sort of x or n or a letter among the letters that could have been attached to the question?

    *shrugs* ok then I'll do my best to work with what I have then, there is this idea that (x^a)^b = x^(a*b) for example (2^4)^5 = 2^(4*5) = 2^(20) do you see what I did there? :)

    it's ok xD so did you understand what I meant? what do you think (9^(-6))^3 would simplify to then?

    or rather 3^(-12)^3... ugh... trying to solve is hard enough without trying to remember the right ways to write it too...lol
