(5d^5) (6d^2)
30d^3
I know that d^3 goes on the bottom to make it positive;however,does 30 go on the bottom as well? Please explain the rule(s) for this. Thanks

(5)*(6) = 30
why would you want it to go on the bottom?
(d^5)(d^2) = d^(5+2) = d^3
The negative exponent says it goes on the bottom. The 30 has no exponent; it's just a number. It's just a negative number, not a negative exponent.
To put it on the bottom would be like saying 6 = 1/6 Nope.
So, 30/d^3 is the final answer
