Is that really 1233/2123^{3/2} at the end? Doesn't look like you will get a simple expression if that's what's expected. The first 2 terms can be expressed as powers of 5 so are ok to combine. Can you upload an image of the original question?
If you mean 125 then all you have to do is convert to powers of 5 and simplify.
