When multiplying exponents with the same base, we add them together, so $2^4 * 2^2
$
is the same as $2^6$

a) $f^3g^2h^4 * f^2gh^3$
$= f^5g^3h^7$

When you have any power to the power of a power, like $(2^6)^4$ you multiply the exponents so you would get $2^24$
b) $(a^3b^2)^3$
= $a^9b^6$

When you are dividing with the same base, we subtract exponents so $2^3/2^2$ is equal to $2^1$ or $2$
c) $a^4bc^-2/a^5b^2c^3$
= $a^-1b^-1c^-5$ those are negative exponents btw.
or = $1/a^1b^1c^5$
