I can simplify this for you!

 $$(4b)^{-2}$$ First, let's use the rule that $$a^{-b}=\frac{1}{a^b}$$. $$\frac{1}{(4b)^2}$$ Simplify $$(4b)^2$$. To do this, "distribute the exponent to both the variable and the coefficient. $$\frac{1}{4^2b^2}$$ Simplify 4^2. $$\frac{1}{16b^2}$$ You cannot simplify any further.
