    \[x^3\times x^3\times x^3\] equivalent to \[(((x^3)^3)^3)\]

    Help, I know that the second equation would net me with x^27, but the first would only be x^9 correct?

    its one of the properties of exponents. If they have the same base which is "x " then you add the exponents. so you get 3+3+3 which is 9.
