$-36x^{8}y^{5}$

#### Work Step by Step

Using the laws of exponents, the given expression, $(-x^2y)^3(6xy)^2 ,$ simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} (-1)^3x^{2(3)}y^{1(3)}\cdot6^{1(2)}x^{1(2)}y^{1(2)} \\\\= (-1)x^{6}y^{3}\cdot6^{2}x^{2}y^{2} \\\\= (-1)x^{6}y^{3}\cdot36x^{2}y^{2} \\\\= (-1)(36)x^{6+2}y^{3+2} \\\\= -36x^{8}y^{5} .\end{array}
