\[\sqrt{64r^{17}}=\sqrt{64}\sqrt{r^{17}}=8(r^{17})^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }=8r^{ \frac{ 17 }{ 2 }}\]

Now put them together. \[\frac{ 175r^5 }{ 8r^{\frac{ 17 }{ 2 } }}=\frac{ 175 }{ 8 }\frac{ r^5 }{ r^{\frac{ 17 }{ 2 }} }\]

You can't that is the simplest fraction. but you need to cancel with r^5 in the numerator. Use the formula I gave x^(nm), where n and m are real numbers
