Okay. you first multiply 3 and 6 wich would be x^18 over y^5 that is as far as it will simplify. Good luck.

i don't think this fraction can be simplified, the two varibale are different! so the fractio would be x^18/y^5 hope this helped

for the numerator-- -according to the exponent property, you multiply 3 and 6, which is equals to 18for the denominator-- -leave it as it is; you can't minus x^18 and y^5 because they don't have the same variabletherefore, the answer is x^18/y^5
