I noticed this question before, did not answer it because I thought it was ambigious.

Are there two different problems here or is it one continuous multiplication.

I will assume you have

(2x^2y)(-5x^-5y^6) which is

= -10x^-3y^7

or

= -10y^7/x^3

(5y)^3 = 125y^3

not much was gained in "simplification" here.

yes they were two different problems and yes i know they're stupid questions in my math book.
