1. myininaya

Yes @danya1 ?

2. danya1

CAN U HELP ME SIMPLIFY THIS

3. myininaya

Do you know law of exponents?

4. danya1

no

5. myininaya

$x^n x^m=x^{n+m}$ $\frac{x^n}{x^m}=x^{n-m}$ $\frac{1}{x^{-n}}=x^n$ $x^{-n}=\frac{1}{x^n}$ $(x^ry^t)^s=x^{rs}y^{ts}$ Here are a few laws... You tell me which one you think applies here.

6. danya1

the first one ??

7. myininaya

Simplify means they don't want any negative exponents... Which law will help us do this And no we can't use the first one because the bases aren't the same.

8. danya1

the last one

9. danya1

??

10. myininaya

Do any of the laws above have negative exponents?

11. danya1

the third and fourth

12. myininaya

Can we use the fourth to rewrite that part that has a negative exponent?

13. danya1

. yea

14. danya1

can u help meeeeeeeeeee?? u still here

17. evansda

Hollaa

18. evansda

You can't add the exponents unless the a's and b's are stated to be constants.

19. evansda

...self

20. ParthKohli

Remember that for example$\large x^5 y^{-5} = \dfrac{x^5}{y^5}$

21. ParthKohli

Can you simplify it similarly?
