It says: Use power of a quotient property to simplify the expression.(x^3)^6 / y^5)if you dnt understand it, than I'll explain it in words lolX to the 3rd power)to the 6th powerDivided by Y to 5th power by the way, its a fraction

 07-27-2007 #3 jenjamsam Guest   Posts: n/a 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.
 07-27-2007 #4 cowluver Guest   Posts: n/a 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

 07-27-2007 #6 Krystal Guest   Posts: n/a 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
