Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To solve this, you need to remember that when dividing powers of terms with the same base you need to subtract the indices. For example \[\large \frac{w^{6} x^{4}}{w^{2} x^{3}}=w^{(62)}x^{(43)}=w^{4}x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah you had 2 and 2, so... \[\large \frac{4x^{3} y^{4}}{8xy^{2}}\\ =\frac{4}{8} \times x^{(31)}y^{(42)}\\ =\frac{1}2x^2y^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the correct choice has 1/2, x^2 and y^2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x3y4/8xy2 Reduce the expression by cancelling the common factors. More Steps Factor 4 out of 4x3y4. 4(x3y4)−8xy2 Rewrite the expression. x3y4−2xy2 x3y4−2xy2 Reduce the expression by cancelling the common factors. More Steps Factor x out of x3y4. x(x2y4)−2xy2 Rewrite the expression. x2y4−2y2 x2y4−2y2 Reduce the expression by cancelling the common factors. More Steps Factor y2 out of x2y4. y2(x2y2)−2y2 Rewrite the expression. x2y2/2 x2y2/2 Move the negative in front of the fraction. −x2y2/2
