Negative and fractional indices treasure hunt

This resource combines a treasure hunt with a code breaking activity to test students' index and substitution skills! Simplify each expression to create a loop of 15 cards, then substitute in values for x and y to decipher the hidden message. Expressions range from simple multiplications to algebraic fractions and raising brackets to a power.

Please look at Card-K
I checked this and could not find a match other than Card-O.
Is this supposed to be a direct match?
