Raise the quantity in parentheses to the indicated exponent, and simplify the resulting expression. Express answers with positive exponents (33xy^1/66x^0y^3)^2
This is the answer i am getting from TRYING to follow my online book. Please Help Me. Thank You!
33/66*x^3/y^1y^3
3*y^3/x^1=3y^3/x^3

I would rethink this. Lets do it in parts:
whole numbers( 33/66)^2= (1/2)^2= 1/4
x values (x/x^0)^2= x^2
y values (y^1/Y3)^2=(y^31)^2= y^4
overall: x^2 * y^4 /4 
Thanks for your help. I wasn't even using the ^2 outside the parenthesis. Thank YOu!
