    Negative exponents mean that you have to move the value to the numerator. Move the 2 and the x^-3 up, and you get 2x^3/y^5

    ^ means the next number is an exponent, btw. So 2x^3 is Two x cubed

    and y^5 is y to the power of 5

    Okay, so the original equation is 1/2^-2 x^-3 y^5

    The numbers that have negative exponents are 2 and x

    If there's a negative exponent in the denominator, you want to move it to the numerator, and change the exponent to positive

    So, if you move the 2^-2 to the top, you multiply it by the numerator, which is 1. You're left with 2. Pretty simple, 2 times 1

    Right now, the equation is 2/x^-3 y^5

    Now, you want to move the x^-3 up to the numerator. You do the same thing. Multiply the numerator by x^3, and you get 2x^3 / y^5 The y^5 stays on the bottom. That's fine.

    the choices are: 16, -4, -1/32, or -16

    Um, none of those would work. You can't solve it with no equal sign. Was that the whole equation?

    We don't have any information on what to plug in for x or y, so it can't be solved. Are you 100% sure that's all the information you've been given, that picture and the answer choices?

    So, let's plug them in. It's 2(2)^3 over (4)^5. The exponent for x is ONLY for x. Don't multiply x by two and then do the exponent, that's wrong. So, 2^3 is 8, times 2 is 16. 4^5 is 1024 (yes, big number, don't freak out.) You're left with 16/1024, or 1/64.

    Wait no that's wrong, I did something wrong. When you plug it in, you get -1/32
