I've converted to Latex for now so that it's easier to read:
Could somebody please show me how to simplify this?
That is, in words, one-fourth "x" raised to the negative three-fourths, "y" raised to the three-fourths, over/divided by three-fourths "x" raised to the one-fourth, "y" raised to the negative one-fourth.
The answer is (y/3x), or in words, "y" over/divided by 3"x".
I just need to see how to get to that and preferably the quickest way.
Thank you so much for the help!
