Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First thing is to take monomials to the power... You multiply exponents when you take a monomial to a power. (y^6 * z^3)^3 = y^18*z9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So on top you have x^1 y^18 z^9 On the bottome you have x^8 y^7 z^6 When you divide monomials  you subtract exponents x^(1  (8)) y^(18  (7)) z^(9  6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^(1 + 8) y^(18 + 7) z(9  6) x^(7) Y^(9) z^(3) To get rid of a negative exponent you take it to the other side of the division line and it becomes a positive exponent. So (x^7 * z^3) / y^9 One fraction you don't need the parentheses in your answer
