## anonymous 4 years ago What is the simplified form of y^2 / x all over y^5 / x^2 ?

1. anonymous

$\frac{ a/b }{ c/d }=\frac{ a }{ b }*\frac{ d }{ c }$ When a fraction is divided by a fraction the problem can be rewritten as the top fraction multiplied by the inverse of the bottom fraction

3. anonymous
