How do I simplify this without negative or zero exponents? 5^-1(3^-2 X 2^-3)^0 I got to 1/5(1/72)^0.... Well here were my steps.... 1/5 ( 1/9 X 1/8 )^0 then 1/5(1/72)^0....

anything to the power 0 = 1! and to clarify on negative exponents lets take 2^-1 for example 2^-1 = 2^0 / 2^1 = 2^0-1(yes?) and since anything to the power 0 = 1 2^0 / 2^1 = 1/2 you can take it from here
