simplify the expression; write without using negative exponents. Assume all numbers are positive
(b^1/2 X a^5/3)^2
1/2^2 = .25 so 1/4 so b^1/4 and 5/3^2=2.77 so is it b^1/4 a^2.77

(a^b)^c = a^(bc)
and
1/2 * 2 = 1 not .25

(b^1/2 X a^5/3)^2
b^1 a^10/3 = b/ a^(10/3)

b/a^10/3
no.
(b^{n})^{m} = n^{mn}
and...
a^{m}= 1/a^{m}
