    The left most one and the one on the right are incorrect.
    The middle one is correct

    First one you seem to have added the quadratic right at the end not subtracted it. Second one looks fine. Third one the 3 cancels in the powers, you don't cube the 3 in the denominator which it looks like you have done.

    Would the answer to the first one be

    4a^2 -13a +16?

    I dont understand how to work out the third one

    Again check your subtraction for the first one.
    As for the third: When raising (Something)n to another power say m the new power = m*n

    Is that 1/(125a2) or 1/125 a2
    You need to subtract ALL of the quadratic. You have everything correct apart from this.

    Correct for 1/(125a^2)
    You still need to minus the 4a2
