 Question 198590: 16x^5y^-8/x^7y^4*(x^3y^2/8xy)^4 PLEASE HELP ME ASAP I HAVE A FINAL ON THIS TOMORROW AND IM SO CONFUSED AND MY TEACHER IS HELPLESS. PLEASE IM BEGGING!!Answer by arallie(162)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Here we go. This is the problem as I understand it. First, make one big fraction. Now we get ride of negative exponents. Move to the other side of the fraction and change the sign. Get rid of all the parentheses we don't need, and move all variables into order. Combined like terms, x's, y's by adding exponents together. Simplify by subtracting exponents on either side of the fraction, smaller from bigger, and reducing the whole number. That's it. Anymore questions feel free to ask me. Anthony Allie arallie@gmail.com http://arallie.webs.com/tutoring.htm
