$r^{2}s^{5}$
When we raise a power to a power, we multiply the powers together and keep the base. Let's multiply the exponent of each term by the exponent outside of the parentheses: $r^{\frac{2}{5}(5)}s^{5}$ Multiply the exponents: $r^{\frac{10}{5}}s^{5}$ Simplify the fraction in the exponent: $r^{2}s^{5}$
