Hi! So, I'm stuck on figuring out how to simplify problems that look like this: (-64/125)^(-2/3). The answer listed in the back of the textbook is 25/16. I had previously tried to solve by expanding the problem into (1/-64/125)^(2/3), and then (1^2/3)/(-64^2/3)/125^2/3) but needless to say that was wrong. Is there anyone who knows a list of steps to complete this problem so I will be able to work through them on my own? Thanks so much in advance, I really appreciate the help.
