(-2x^2y)^3 * (5xy^3)^2

What is ^ and * suppose to symbolize?

^=power

*=times/multiply

(-2x^2y)^3 * (5xy^3)^2

Sorry, I do not recall how to do this. I don't want to misguide you.

First remove the parentheses by cubing the first term and squaring the second.

(-8x^6y^3)*(25x^2y^6)= can you take it from here.
