Divide (x^4y^4) by (xy).
Need to show work to help me understand.
Also need to answer without parentheses.
Thanks for any and all help with this one!!

(x^4y^4)
= (x^2  y^2)(x^2 + y^2)
= (x+y)(xy)(x^2 + y^2)
so (x^4y^4)÷(xy)
= (x+y)(xy)(x^2 + y^2)÷(xy)
= (x+y)(x^2 + y^2)
expand this if you don't want the brackets.
