You have to raise everything within the parenthesis to the 5th power.
 
25x5(y6)5 = 32x5y5x6  *Remember to multiply exponents
 
It becomes  32x5y30
 
I hope this helps.

Hi Jeanetta,
 
(2xy6)is the same thing as (2)5 * (x)5 * (y6)5. Therefore:
 
(2)5 * (x)5 * (y6)5
= 32 * (x5) * (y6*5)
= 32x5y30
 
 
(* is multiplication)
 
Hope you find this helpful!
