The exponent rule is Product to Power meaning distributing the outside exponent to every term inside the parenthesis.

the problem 4⁻³ will be 1/4³ ?

yes James. That is correct
The problem 7⁴/ 7³ will be?
when dividing and the bases are the same. You only need to subtract the exponents.
It will be 7⁴-³ !
