Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first the \(2\) outside means a) flip everything, then b) square it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so first \[\huge\frac{1}{\left(3u^2v^3\right)^2}\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then we need so square everything that means square \(3\) to get \(9\) and also double each exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay but where did the 2 come from in the parenthesis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\frac{1}{\left(3u^3v^3\right)^2}=\frac{1}{9u^6v^6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh oops that was a typo

tootsi123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay :) i'm following

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1should have been \[\huge\frac{1}{\left(3u^3v^3\right)^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then square all answer above is right though, looks like your choice A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you :) okay there is another question like it... can i post it and tell you how i would do it and then you tell me if i am doing it right or not??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok sure \[\color\magenta\heartsuit\]

tootsi123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So i would flip it first right

misty1212
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the reason we flipped before was because there was a \(2\) outside the parentheses

tootsi123
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay so then i wouldn't flip it i would leave it the same

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is only one choice here that makes sense take a look you have \[\huge\frac{x^4}{x^{5}}\] right?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the \(5\) in the deominator means bring it up to the numerator as \(+5\) so \[\frac{x^4}{x^{5}}=x^4\times x^5=x^{4+5}=x^9\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1only one choice as \(x^9\) in it so we dont really need to do the rest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i take the two common ones and add them

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah you want to do it all?

tootsi123
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes please cause i have a lot more questions like this and i want to make sure i understand them

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok lets take it slow

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first off, unlike the last one there is no parentheses anywheres, so it is somewhat easier

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have a minus sign out front that stays there

misty1212
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you also have \[\frac{2}{4}\] which is the same as \(\frac{1}{2}\) so there will be a 2 in the denominator

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as for the x terms, you have \[\frac{x^4}{x^{5}}\] the \(5\) has a minus sign, so that comes upstairs as \(x^5\) which is why you get \[\frac{x^4}{x^{5}}=x^4\times x^5=x^9\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and for \[\frac{y^2}{y^5}\] the 5 is bigger than the 2, so subtract 2 from 5 in the denominator \[\frac{y^2}{y^5}=\frac{1}{y^{52}}=\frac{1}{y^3}\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so in total, a) there is a  sign out front b) there is a 2 in the denominator c) there is a \(x^9\) in the numerator and d) a \(y^3\) in the denominator

tootsi123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so which ever number is bigger you use that to decide whether or not you add or subtract and whether or not it says on the top or the bottom, am i right?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the exponent is negative a) if it is up bring it down b) if it is down bring it up

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if both terms have positive exponents, subtract the smaller one from the bigger one

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is an example \[\frac{x^7}{x^{3}}=x^{10}\] wheras \[\frac{x^4}{x^{10}}=\frac{1}{x^6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay that makes a little more since now
