    Hints: Negative exponent means inverse one-half power means square root

    Let's at least change the 1/2 into square roots: \(\large\frac{\sqrt{a^5b^3}}{(\sqrt{ab})^{-1}}\)

    @mathslover, you should probably restrain yourself from doing that. It's kinda rude.

    When new users do it, It's okay because they have no clue what's going on anyway. But when a user who has been here for a while does it, then I get upset.

    @mathslover Hmm, that is still not an excuse. You must have read the Code Of Conduct, which mentions not to give answers out.

    @Hero @mathslover We might want to indulge in chat, this is supposed to be a question that has already been solved.

    In this case, it would have been good to guide the user to the result. He was obviously trying to understand how to get to the solution. He only needed a few hints and some advice, rather than post the entire solution all at once. You usually only do that when the user isn't present or if the user specifically requests it. Other than that, it is best to guide the users. Remember, this is a learning environment. Posting the entire solution isn't always as effective as you might believe @mathslover. Guiding is much more effective.

    No, I don't want to spoil this question. We'd continue our conversation here.
