Can someone please help me with solving this equation (I don't know how to do it with the fractions)

1/3 x1^-2/3 . x2^2/3

--------------------

2/3 x1^1/3 . x2^-1/3

how do I cancel out some of the terms and reduce it down so that Im left with x2 on top and x1 on bottom??

And please explain it because I don't know how to cancel out with fractions.

Thanks xx

Add the fractions

a^{b } * a^{c }= a^{b+c }

it probably doesnt show that well but one is x1 and the other x2 so you can add their fractions
