    multiplying/dividing fractions with exponents?

    Hello,

    This is my first time posting here but im sure it wont be the last :P

    Anyways im in my first math class in about 2-3 years and i have done this stuff before but i cant remember very much. These 3 in particular have got me stumped and im not even sure what you would call this in order to look it up.

    (3a^2x/4ay^2)/(6ax/5a^3x^2)

    Im not sure how to type the other two without it looking like gibberish so here is a picture of it. i hope this is legible, any help would be much appreciated.



    Im not even sure where to start with these...

    Division is multiplication by multiplicative inverse. Therefore dividing by 2*a*x/3*b*y is multiplicate by 3*b*y/2*a*x.
