    Divide the coefficients and for variables apply the exponent rule when we divide same base , `subtract` their exponents \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{m-n}\]

    like for first one \[\huge\rm \frac{ 10 x^4y^3}{ -5x^2y^1} =\frac{10}{-5}x^{4-2}y^{3-1}\] y is same as y to the one power

    subtract exponents and divide the coefficient

    Just to be correct on this, That would make the answer -2x^2y^2-1xy+3+5y^2 correct @Nnesha?

    \[\huge\rm \frac{ - 25x^2y^4 }{ -5x^2y } = ??\]

    remember y is same as y to the one power (y^1)
