    \[-\frac{ 5x^2y^3z^4 }{ 20x^3y^7z^4 } = -\frac{ 5 }{ 20 }\times \frac{ x^2 }{ x^3 }\times \frac{ y^3 }{ y^7 }\times \frac{ z^4 }{ z^4}\]

    use these steps for each one of those terms: \[\frac{ y^3 }{ y^7 }\] \[\frac{ z^4 }{ z^4 }\] and then put them all together

    not quite, the exponents on x and y should be negative, or you should put them in the denominator of your final answer like this \[-\frac{ 1 }{ 4xy^4 }\] or \[-\frac{ x ^{-1}y ^{-4} }{ 4 }\]

    and yes \[\frac{ z ^{4} }{ z^4 } = 1 \] so it cancels

    you can divide the exponents or subtract the exponents or both whenever you divide a fraction

    the x exponents cancel, why are you leaving them in? it's not a 2 on top, it's x^3

    yes so x's would be x^1 or x^0

    x^2/x^2 = x^2-2 = x^0 = 1

    x^3/x^3 = x^1 or X^3 - x^3 = 0

    did you mean to put divide instead of subtract for x^3 - x^3?

    you can divide or subtract depending on the number

    like if it's the same you divide and if its different you subtract the big from little( 8-5)
