I am so confused with the rules of exponents. I know them, but I have a hard time applying them because of all the steps. I was wondering if someone would be willing to answer these questions, because I am unsure if my answers are right.
x to the third power y to the negative two power/x to the negative two power times y to the fourth power=
2x to the neg. second power (3x to the fourth - 6x to the econd)=
(-2x to the third)(-3x to the neg second) both expressions to the neg second
(2x to the second y to the negative second) to the third power
(2x to the negative fifth y to the fourth) to the third
Thank you your help is genuinely appreciated.
