I am stuck. desperately need help simplifying (n)/(n^5/3). and someone else that I am working with keeps telling me that the answer is (1) /(n^2/3). but I dont understand HOW. wouldn't it be the difference of the exponents which is -2/3. so the answer would be n^-2/3 and NOT (1)/(n^2/3)? *confused*
Lost love (1) /(n^2/3) is the same thing as n^-2/3 just like how 1/(x^2) is the same thing as x^-2
oops i mean lost dove my apologies
do you understand or do you need me to clarify
ohh okay so its basically the matter of moving the n up and down. which determines the negative/positive value. thanks for the clarification! :)
\[a^{-2} =1 / a^{2}\] yes so its like this basic concept
