the last phrase looks a little confusing so let me try to explain. it is 1 over 2 times ten, which ten is to the 35th power.

the first part is 1 divided by five, and the total expression to the m'th power and the second part is 1 divided by 4, all to the 18th power.

any help would be greatly appreciated and please show work!!! i got the gmat exam tomorrow, saturday!!! if anyone has an understanding of this problem and could call me, i would greatly appreciate it. my number is 954-465-5395. thanks in advance
