cube the first fraction and square the last ...

$\displaystyle \frac{27a^3}{b^6} \cdot b^7 \cdot \frac{4a^2}{9}$

make it all one fraction by multiplying ...

$\displaystyle \frac{27a^3 \cdot b^7 \cdot 4a^2}{b^6 \cdot 9}$

can you finish?

3. Aw man! right under my nose! thanks so much!!!

$\displaystyle 12a^5b$

Thanks!
