Work Step by Step

Using $\left(\dfrac{a}{b}\right)^x=\dfrac{a^x}{b^x}$, then the expression, $ \left(\dfrac{-4p^5}{3m^2n^3}\right)^3 $, simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \dfrac{(-4p^5)^3}{(3m^2n^3)^3} .\end{array} Using $(a^x)^y=a^{xy}$, then the given expression, $ \dfrac{(-4p^5)^3}{(3m^2n^3)^3} $, simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \dfrac{(-4)^3p^{5(3)}}{3^3m^{2(3)}n^{3(3)}} \\\\= \dfrac{-64p^{15}}{27m^{6}n^{9}} .\end{array}
