Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright, let's get the negative powers positive by switching their places and we'll get :\[= (15b^{10})/(3a^7a^4b^6)\] so now we know that : \[= (3)(5)b^{10}/3a^{11}b^6\] let's cancel out the commons and simplify ^_^: \[= 5b^4/a^{11}\] get the idea now? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, okay, we want to get the powers (+) instead of () so in order to do that, if we have a negative powe in the top we get it down to get it positive and vice versa ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you want b^10 positive, so you get it up to make it b^10 :) switch the places

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we simplify and subtract, b^10  b^6 = b^4 and the one with the greatest power takes the lead, which means the answer stays up :)
