I assume that is \[\frac{2x4}{5x}\frac{15x}{x2} \] right?

You can rewrite that like this... \[\frac{2(x2)}{5x}\frac{3(5x)}{x2} \] which would be six, no?

It's called LaTeX, don't worry about it. And just look at it, I dunno what else to tell you really. 2x4 = 2(x2), right?

So, the (x2)'s cancel, and the 5x's cancel, leaving you with 2*3 = 6.

You'll notice the "Equation" button just below the text box.

i see it but i havent figured out how to work it

It's a document typesetting language called LaTeX. If you can't work the buttons don't worry about it because what I just typed looks like this: "\frac{5}{pq^2} \frac{3p^3r}{10q} "

I understood what you meant well enough when you just typed it.

And to answer your question, that would be \[\frac{15p^3r}{10pq^3} = \frac{3p^2r}{2q^3}\]

can you explain how you got that?

Jemurray3Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I can tell you that when you multiply fractions, you multiply the numerators and denominators together, and that 15 and 10 share a common factor of 5 so that reduces to 3/2 when you cancel it, and p^3 / p = p^2, but besides that, I apologize, I do not know how to explain it further.
