#(-3)^5w^15z^40= -243w^15z^40#


It is a big number but there is no other way to simplify it any more than that. You simply take the 5 and multiply it by every exponent. Even the -3. Imagine that the -3 is actually -3 to the first power. Taking 5 times every exponent would result in #(-3)^5w^15z^40#. If you have any questions, please free to ask.
