    Hi, this question is just confusing for me (and the other ones like it)....

    (4c to the power of -3 over 3) all to the power of 3

    I'll attach a picture of it as well, its hard and takes too much time to find all the maths symbols

    Okay, so to solve this, or at least get it into a simpler form, we need to think of each term individually and understand what the implications of each exponentiation have on each term.

    Numerator:

    4: It's important to keep in mind that the exponentiation on 'c' doesn't affect the 4. The only exponential which has an effect is the one outside of the bracket: ^3.
    Hence, find 43

    (c-3)3: Here we have a term that has a power attached to it both inside and outside of the bracket. What do we do to indices in regards to brackets? What's the relevant indices law?

    Denominator:

    3: All of the terms inside the bracket must be exponentiated by '^3'. Do that to 3.

    Let me know what you get
