# Math Help - express as fraction w/o neg exponents

1. ## express as fraction w/o neg exponents

Factor and simplify. Express the answer as a fraction without negative exponents

(-5/3)x(x+3)^(-3/2) + 5(x+3)^(-1/2)

Need help =[

2. I think this is the answer, it is correct?

3. woops, the x between the (-5/3) and (x+3) is a variable.

(-5/3)(x)(x+3)^(-3/2) + 5(x+3)^(-1/2)

hmm.. I don't think the (x+3)^(-3/2) can be broken down into (x+3)^3 times (x+3)^(-1/2).

4. woops... i forget... i'm sory...

I hope this is the right answer

5. wow.. I think that's it o.o Thanks for the help!
