9-71.

Each exponent (the smaller number to the top right of the 10) represents another 10 by which to multiply.

(10)(10)(10)(10) = 10,000

What is the exponent in this problem?
That will be the number of fives to multiply together.

(5)(5)(5) = 125

Remember, when multiplying fractions, you simply multiplythe numerators together and denominators together.

The product of three negative numbers is a negative number.
