# How do you simplify #b^3(m^-3)(b^-6)#?

When a number has a negative exponent, it becomes its reciprocal.

The negative number will move to the denominator if it is in the numerator and to the numerator if it is in the denominator.

Exponent rules are relatively easy to understand, though they can be a little challenging at first.

You must at the very least be familiar with the Product Rule and the Negative Exponent Rule in order to solve your problem.

According to the Negative Exponent Rule:

According to the Product Rule:

To simplify b^3(m^-3)(b^-6), you multiply the like terms together. In this case, you combine the b terms by adding the exponents, resulting in b^(3-6). Then, you combine the m terms by multiplying the exponents, giving you m^(-3). So, the simplified expression is b^(-3)m^(-3).
