Answer:

#m^6p^15#

Explanation:

#color(blue)("The teaching bit")#

By example suppose we had the variable #a#

This may be written as #a^1#

Now compare to #a xx a xx a=a^3 =a^(1+1+1)#

So if we had #(a^2)^3# this would be the same as #a^(2xx3)=a^6#

If you have doubts! : #2^2xx2^2 = 4xx4=16 = 2^(2xx2)=16#
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Using the above approach we have:

#(m^(2xx3))xx(p^(5xx3))#

#m^6p^15#
