## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

When a fraction is raised to a power, we distribute that power to both the numerator (the top of the fraction) and the denominator (the bottom of the fraction). Thus, we obtain: $(2/3)^{3}$= ($2^{3})$/($3^{3}$) $2^{3}$ means two multiplied by itself three times and $3^{3}$ means three multiplied by itself three times, so we find: ($2^{3})$/($3^{3}$)= 8/27
