    if you have an expression with a negative exponent that is in the bottom portion of the fraction. putting it in the top of the fraction makes it positive.

    1/exponent is the same as -exponent/1

    both expressions get raised to the third power because they're in parentheses

    b. When you have variables with exponents over variables with exponents you subtract the exponents

    @MATTW20 last one i promise ! Show the expanded form and simplification of x^6 over x^2. Explain in your own words how you can simplify x^6 over x^2 without having to write the expanded form. Create your own fraction with like bases, coefficients, and show its simplification

    you can simplify (x^6)/(x^2) without writing expanded form by using the formula \[\frac{ x ^{a} }{ x ^{b} }=x ^{a-b}\] so \[\frac{ x ^{6} }{ x ^{2} }=x ^{6-2}=x ^{4}\]

    As for the last one all you have to do is make up a problem of your own and solve it

    just put some in the form of \[\frac{ x ^{a} }{ x ^{b} }\] a and b can be whatever number you like

    okay so now you use the formula i showed you earlier \[\frac{ x ^{a} }{ x ^{b} }=x ^{a-b}\] just substitute a for 5 and b for 7

    so it would be x^5 --- = x^5-7 x^7
