    part of inverse gamma

    Hi, please help me i am lost and bad at algebra

    is it possible to go from
    <br />
exp[-\frac{1}{2}(\frac{s + n\mu^2 - 2n\mu \overline{y} + \overline{y^2}n)}{\sigma^2 c} ]<br />

    to

    <br />
exp [\frac {s + n\overline{y^2}(\frac{1/c}{n + 1/c})}{2\sigma^2}]

    ?

    (because Im trying to make my beta equal to the last part)

    or am i just wasting my time trying to make this work?

    because i tried, and i can't
