    14x^(2)y^(3)/35(x)y^(2) 1/35x(y)^(2) = x^(-1)y^(-2)/35

    remember the rule that 1/x = x^(-1) and when multiplying variables with exponents you add them

    so bring the variables to the numerator 14x^(2)y^(3)x^(-1)y^(-2)/35

    now add the exponents to simplify, you do the next step im lazy
