Sorry I thought it went threw 


The Question is (14-a^0 b^2)^-3  a=-2 and b=4

What do I do with the -3 exponent on the outside?

a^0 =1

b^2 = 4^2 =16

(14-a^0 b^2)^-3 = (14-16)^-3

                         = (-2)^-3 

                         =(-2)^0-3

                         = (-2)^0/ (-2)^3

                         = 1/(-2)^3

                         = -1/8

Please let me know if you have any other questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
