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
