    example \[ \huge\rm \frac{ a }{ \frac{ b }{ c} } = a \times \frac{ c }{ b }\] multiply top withe the reciprocal of the bottom fraction that's ti

    You have to get rid of the negative so flip the fraction

    first exponent rule \[\huge\rm \frac{ 1 }{ x^{-m} } = x^m\] flip the fraction to change negative to positive exponent

    and then apply this exponent rule \[\huge\rm x^\frac{ m }{ n } = \sqrt[n]{x^m}\]

    you need to convert exponent to root

    so after applying first exponent rule we get \[\huge\rm x^\frac{ 3 }{ 6 }\] now reduce the fraction 3/6 = ?
