Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^1 is equivalent to 1/x, therefore you get the complex fraction of 1/x/(x1)/1. When you have a complex (doubledecker) fraction you can solve it by multiplying by top fraction by the reciprocal of the bottom one. Therefore; (1/x) * (x1)/1, which is equal to (x1)/x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't get it. I see how x^1 equals 1/x, but then I don't get how that becomes the double decker fraction.
