Do not leave any negative exponents in your answer.: ^ (108r^2 · y)/(9r^3 · y^2) Answer by elima(1433)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! First of all you need to cancel out 108 and 9; Now you subtract the exponents of the same variables; since they are negative exponents they go in the denominator; Hope you understand, it's kinda hard to explain negative exponents =)
