Reformatting the input :

Changes made to your input should not affect the solution:

(1): "^-2" was replaced by "^(-2)".

Step  1  :

            b2
 Simplify   ——
            2 

Equation at the end of step  1  :

              b2
  ((((3•(a3))•——)•a)•b)-2
              2 

Step  2  :

Equation at the end of step  2  :

           b2
  (((3a3 • ——) • a) • b)-2
           2 

Step  3  :

Equation at the end of step  3  :

    3a3b2
  ((————— • a) • b)-2
      2  

Step  4  :

 4.1    a4 raised to the minus 2 nd power = a( 4 * -2 ) = a-8

 4.2    b3 raised to the minus 2 nd power = b( 3 * -2 ) = b-6

Final result :

  a(-8)b(-6) • 22 
  ———————————————
      1 • 32
