@Compassionate Please stop it dude.

5. Compassionate

Hba, what's the issue?

6. hba

@Compassionate 1) Giving direct answers is not allowed. 2) You have to provide a simplified answer and this is not the correct option which you provided.

7. Compassionate

He wanted me to clarify that is was D. He already sent me a message asking if he was right or not, I was just clarifying that he was correct.

8. hba

Sorry to say but the answer is C.

9. Compassionate

Impossible. 6 cannot go into 15, therefor you keep it as 6/15

10. hba

Lets look at the question. |dw:1356345972380:dw|

11. hba

@Compassionate Do you agree ?

12. Compassionate

13. Compassionate

There is no need to cancel them because they're exponents.

14. hba

|dw:1356346226690:dw| But,we have to simplify it as much as we can.

15. Compassionate

But we're multiplying not dividing, so canceling isn't necessary.

16. Compassionate

You're cross canceling, which is used in division. In multiplication, we cross multiply.

17. hba

@Compassionate Simply means multiplying and dividing it and we have an option which is more simplified and appropriate

18. hba

Where does it says only multiply ?

19. Compassionate

But the equations tells us to multiply.

20. Compassionate

Because the exponents are being multiplied by the exponents.

21. hba

@Compassionate Well that seems like you just agree to diagree

22. Compassionate

Maybe you're right, I haven't done this in a long time.

23. hba

hmm :)

24. heedcom

I agree with both but to be simplified it must be in simple form which is what @hba has already said 2/5
