Vane11 Group Title Decided to upload a pic since it'd be confusing to write it out I got stuck about halfway one year ago one year ago

$\frac{(m^4z^3)^{-2}}{(m^5z)^{-1}}$?

3. Vane11 Group Title

yep :)

4. satellite73 Group Title

you can start any way you like, but maybe the simplest method is to flip everything and make the exponents positive

5. satellite73 Group Title

$\frac{(m^5z)}{(m^4z^3)^2}$

6. satellite73 Group Title

now multiply each exponent in the denominator by 2

7. satellite73 Group Title

$\frac{m^5z}{m^8z^6}$

8. satellite73 Group Title

then cancel away $\frac{1}{m^3z^5}$ will finish it

thanks! I had forgotten about the flipping around and was trying to do it the original way which was much more confusing

yeah sometimes it is not clear what is easiest to do first
