    Basic Indices question

    This is basic, and I actually have my answer here. All I'm looking for is either confirmation I am correct, or that I'm incorrect.
    So please take a look for yourself.
    Am I right? I need to know if I've done this correctly or not.

    Thanks for any help.

    Question

    \frac{(x^2)^{-3}*(y^3)^2}{x^{-1}*y^4}

    My Answer
    \frac{y^2}{x^5}

    (I wasn't sure how to do multiplication symbol so I just used the * sign)

    Thanks again
