For this problem, can you collect all the x powers and y powers together and simplify?
Remember that a^x * a^y = a^(x+y) and a^x / a^y = a^(x-y).
I'm new to this forum, so I may not be doing something right, but I just couldn't figure out how to do this problem! I would really like to know how to do it and the answer.
Thank you for any much needed help!
