I have an exponent that needs to be simplified like this: (6x^(-8)y)^(-2) multiplied by (3x3y^(-3))^4 Would it end up anything like this: (6^(-2)x^(16)y(-2)) multiplied by (3^(4)x^(4)3^(4)y^(-12) Thats what I got so far.

$\displaystyle 6^{-2}x^{16}y^{-2} \cdot 3^4x^4 \cdot 3^4y^{-12}$ is correct so far. Now you can combine like terms.
In the end I got: x^(20)3^(8) DIVIDED BY 36y^(14) Look alright? Thanks a million by the way!
Yes but you could still simplfy a little more. $\displaystyle \frac{729x^{20}}{4y^{14}}$
