    Answer:   a^2

    Work Shown:

    I’m assuming the “x” means “multiply”, and it is not a variable.

    a^5 * a^(-3) = a^(5+(-3)) = a^(5-3) = a^2

    The rule I’m using is

    a^b*a^c = a^(b+c)

    The base is always the same. We add the exponents.

    The expression a^2 is in the form a^n with n = 2.
