Answer:

#-6y^4z#

Explanation:

#(2yz)(-3y^3)# is simply saying: #2yz times -3y^3#

If you multiply two exponents together, they powers simply add together.

#a^3# x #a^2# = #a^5#

#a# x #b# = #ab#

Using these rules of algebra you can simplify:

#2yz times -3y^3#

to

#-6y^4z#

or simplified version to see clearer:
#(-3x2)(ytimesy^3)(ztimes1)#
#-6timesy^4timesz#
#-6y^4z#
