Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\left( \frac{ 3x ^{\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }}y ^{3} }{ x ^{2} y ^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }}} \right)^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh my goodness that was a heck of an expression to get out. So far, what I've done is this: \[\left( \frac{ x ^{2}y ^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }} }{ 3x ^{\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }} y ^{3}} \right)^{2}\] basically, I got ride of the negative 2 exponent by flipping the fraction around. If this was an incorrect thing to do, someone let me know now. My recollection of algebra rules is a bit foggy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3sorry abt that i need to buy a new laptop >.< i'm just gonna use draw tool dw:1440364115001:dw but i'm sure we will get the same answer :=) yes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that's the same thing as this \[\left( \frac{ x ^{2}y ^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }} }{ 3x ^{\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }} y ^{3}} \right)^{2}\] so yes your first step is right wanna try next step :=)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sure. Here is what I think I should do next Distribute the 2 exponent. So I would get this: \[ \frac{ x ^{4} y ^{1}}{ 9x ^{3}y ^{6} }\\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh man xD let me try that again \(\Large\frac{x^{4} y^{1}}{9x^{3}y^{6}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Kinda confused from there, but if I recall correctly, then I would simplify as follows: \(\Large\frac{xy^{7}}{9}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2would that be a correct way of simplifying?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wao! alright I wasn't even sure if that was correct XD So last of all, I assume that since we don't want any negative exponents for the final simplified form, we would put the y in the denominator in order to eliminate the negative exponent. It would look like this: \(\Large\frac{x}{9y^{7}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Thank you so so much XD I didn't know if I was heading in the right direction to be honest, in my textbook, there's no answer key for any of the review. So I just tried things and crossed my fingers lol. Thanks for helping me make sure that I was doing the right thing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@triciaal thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I'm pretty nervous to begin college honestly, but reviewing early concepts is a good way to prep. for the higher math courses that I'm going to be taking in the extremely near future. To be precise, in two days! Thank you for you advice, I will make sure I ask for help whenever I need it and do my best to always remain confident in my abilities.
