## Ash90 one year ago need help solving this? simplify

1. yazed

what is the question

2. Ash90

|dw:1389457702163:dw|

3. yazed

i would love to but i can nit understand your handwriting

4. Ash90

y^3/8(y^5/8-y^13/8)/y^1/5(y^4/5-y^-1/5)

5. Potatoes.ramu

I think y^(-73/40)

6. hartnn

distribute the outer y's inside first, like a(b+c) = ab+ac |dw:1389457956911:dw|

7. Potatoes.ramu

8. Potatoes.ramu

Completely forgot about the minus signs. So sorry!!

9. yazed

thank u for admiting that u were wrong i gave u a medal

10. Ash90

y-y^7/40/y-1

11. hartnn

how y^7 ? how 40 ?

12. hartnn

you meant exponent as 7/40 ??

13. hartnn

only that term is incorrect, |dw:1389458291974:dw| everything else was correct

14. Ash90

yes

15. Ash90

oh

16. hartnn

|dw:1389458323955:dw| and \(\huge \dfrac{3}{8}+\dfrac{13}{8}=\dfrac{3+13}{8}=...\)

17. Ash90

2

18. hartnn

yes, so can you continue ?

19. Ash90

so it would be =-y2

20. hartnn

|dw:1389458629536:dw| that can be simplified, can you ?

21. Ash90

yes hold on

22. Ash90

-y

23. hartnn

\(\huge \checkmark \)
