    That's a good point FFM so lets do simplification that you know, but a little more intense: I think I need to make sure you can simplify bigger things:\[\frac{x^2y^5z}{xy^9z^3}\]

    just that dividing and multiplying are inverse operations x^a=x*x*x*...*x (a times) x^b=x*x*x*...*x (b times) so if we have a=3 b=2 we get x^a --- x^b x*x*x =-----= x x*x which is x^(a-b) if we have (x^a)(x^b) we get (x*x*x)(x*x)=x*x*x*x*x=x^(a+b) so the rules for exponents here come directly from their definitions. You can count the x and see that this relationship holds.

    no you're over-thinking x^2-y^2 is difference of squares again!

    \[a^2-b^2=(a-b)(a+b)\]

    So (x-y)(x+y)?

    yes! so now factor\[p^4-q^4\]completely!!

    you will apply difference of squares twice

    (p^2-q^2)(p^2+q^2) (p-q)(p+q)(p+q)+(p+q)?

    (p^2-q^2)(p^2+q^2) stop here we cannot factor the second set of parentheses, it is not a /difference/ of squares, it is a /sum/ of squares, and we have no formula for that. check that (a+b)(a+b) is not a^2+b^2 so only factor the one that is a /difference/ of squares

    (p-q)(p+q)(p^2+q^2) You said i had to do difference in squares 2 times? Btw, lets move to a new thread, this one is starting to lag a little bit

    That is above correct, you did difference of squares twice: p^4-q^4 (p^2-q^2)(p^2+q^2) <-once (p-q)(p+q)(p^2+q^2) <-twice ok new thread...
