    Product of Quotient

    I really did not wanted to start a new thread, but like skeeter said
    a single thread with multiple problems all strung out is more annoying.
    .


    So I'm having a bit of confusion with simplifying this algebraic expression.
    Problem: \frac{y^1^0}{2x^3}\frac{20x^1^4}{xy^6}

    How I solved it.

    \frac{y^1^0}{2x^3}\frac{20x^1^4}{xy^6} = \frac{y^1^0&20x^1^4}{2x^3&xy^6}

    = \frac{y^1^020x^1^4}{2x^4y^6} <-- Should I also add the bases?

    = y^1^0^-^6& 10x^1^4^-^4

    Result: y^4&10x^1^0

    You're welcome!
    In general you have to know to important rules to solve exercices like this one.
    a^{x}\cdot a^{y}=a^{x+y}
    \frac{a^{x}}{a^{y}}=a^{x-y}
