    1. This is somewhat simple.
     \frac{10a^4b^3}{25a^6b^5c^2}

    \frac{10}{25}\cdot\frac{a^4}{a^6}\cdot\frac{b^3}{b  ^5}\cdot\frac{1}{c^2}}

    Before I go on I want to review.  \frac{2\cdot3}{2}=\frac{\not2\cdot3}{\not2}=3

    Now continuing on....

    \frac{10}{25}\cdot\frac{a^4}{a^6}\cdot\frac{b^3}{b  ^5}\cdot\frac{1}{c^2}}


    \frac{10}{25}\cdot \frac{a\cdot a\cdot a\cdot a}{a\cdot a\cdota\cdot a\cdot a\cdot a} \cdot\frac{b\cdot b\cdot b}{b\cdot b\cdot b\cdot b\cdot b} \cdot\frac{1}{c^2}}

    \frac{10}{25}\cdot \frac{\not a\cdot\not a\cdot\not a\cdot\not a}{\not a\cdot\not a\cdot\not a\cdot\not a\cdot a\cdot a} \cdot\frac{\not b\cdot \not b\cdot\not b}{\not b\cdot \not b\cdot\not b\cdot b\cdot b} \cdot\frac{1}{c^2}}

    \frac{10}{25}\cdot\frac{1}{a\cdot a}\cdot\frac{1}{b\cdot b}\cdot\frac{1}{c^2}}

    \frac{10}{25}\cdot\frac{1}{a^2}\cdot\frac{1}{b^2} \cdot \frac{1}{c^2}}

    \frac{10\cdot1\cdot1\cdot1}{25\cdot a^2\cdot b^2\cdot c^2}

    \frac{10}{25a^2b^2c^2}

    I wrote it out for you, but the way to find  \frac{a^2}{a^4} would be saying  a^{(2-4)} .


    2. For this one, remember the rule  a^2\cdot a^3=a^{(2+3)}

     \left(2ab^2\right)\left(-3a^2\right)\left(4ab\right)\left(-b^2\right)

     2ab^2\cdot-3a^2\cdot4ab\cdot -b^2

     -6a^3b^2\cdot4ab\cdot -b^2

     -24a^4b^3\cdot -b^2

     24a^4b^5

     24b^5a^4

    You could do it that way, but I prefer to do it this way.

     2ab^2\cdot-3a^2\cdot4ab\cdot -b^2

     \left(2\cdot-3\cdot4\cdot-1\right) \left(a\cdot a^2\cdot a\right) \left(b^2\cdot b\cdot b^2\right)

     24 a^4 b^5

     24  b^5a^4
