    I can help, too. You need to apply one of the rules of exponents.

    So at first, this may seem very confusing with all those variables and exponents. If you're a beginner at this, try putting all the variables into expanded form like this:

    So, all you need to do now is cancel out whatever is repeating in both the numerator and denominator.

    It is like subtracting the exponents that have the like bases.

    Once you get the hang of this, you don't need to put the exponents into expanded form all the time. Just directly subtract.

    I used to be like you, trust me, Algebra is easier once you are familiar with it more. I actually just completed my Algebra 1 course a few weeks ago haha

    Don't think negative! Everyone is smart in their own way. Personally, Algebra 1 is my weakest subject but I try my best. Here's an easy example:
