( m^1/4 ^ n ^1/2) ^2 * ( m^2 n^3) ^1/2 =
 
  ( m ^1/2 * n)  * ( m * n^3/2) =
 
   m^3/2 * n ^ 5/2    or  √(m^3. n^5)
 
    Operation of Exponent    a ^ m . a ^n = a ^ ( m +n)
                                       
                                     ( a^m ) ^n = a ^(mn)  
                                        
                                        Is used.

First line typo: remove ^ between 1/4 and n.
