I have this question in my SAT prep book, but it just tells me to solve it. I think it's an expression, but what kind of expression is it? on the answers, it says the solution is z3. I haven't the slightest clue where to even start on this problem, or what to do..

I believe it wants you to simplify the expression by multiplying and canceling exponents.
