    Simplify the expression into positive exponents

    [ (2m^2p^3)^2 * (4m^2p)^-2 ] / [ (-3mp^4)^-1 * (2m^3p^4)^3 ]

    i worked it out on my own and got the answer 3/32m^8p^4
    can someone please work it out and confirm if u used the right process?

    many thanks.

    the only flaw here is that you forgot the negative sign in the denominator.

    the answer is \dfrac{-3}{32m^8p^4}
