$-\frac{8a^6}{b^{15}}$

no?

what exactly do you have in mind?

3. Modify/simplify somehow. I think it's already simplified, but someone asked me that looking for an answer.

4. oh ok, well different bases so i see nothing that can be done.

please tell me if you find something out! haha

5. They said it can't be negative.

6. = (-2a^2/b^5)^3 = -(2a^2/b^5)^3

7. Isn't that just rearranging? Also, it's still negative.
