Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Powers in the denominator and numerator cancels each other. If we have common factors, the powers in the numerator  powers in the denominator gives you simplified form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The problem now is to find these common factors, well you can't tell that you have or don't have common factors unless you factor all the expression to the prime factors, like x^21 =(x1)(x+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um what? O.o I just want to know how the example got x^6 and x^8 is x^6 and same for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I told what's written is confusing, it's trying to say that x^8=x^6*x^2, so x^8/x^6= x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically, we express this procedure by saying power of the numeratorpower of the denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes 86=2 .. But that not what the answer is showing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is not in the simplified form. He was writing the similar terms in top of each other, so that he can cancel them easily

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um okay.. Then y is 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The expression will develop to simple form, 95% percent you will NOT get a number, just x and y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um okay? So whats the final answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In our case, it's ((x6)*y)/x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay.. For the problem im working on x^4x^5=? y^6y^5=? x=1 y=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The original problem is  Multiply x^364/ x^5y^5 * x^4y^6/x^2+4x+16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The final form is (x4)*y/x, I followed exactly the same procedure, now just the numbers..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay.. So I just ignore that is a negative?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't ignore anything \[((1)4)*1/(1)=?\]
