Simplify the following expression, and rewrite it in an equivalent form with positive exponents.
14xy / 42x^5y^8

14xy/42x^5y^8
=1/3 x^(15) y^(18)
=1/3 x^4 y^7
=1/[3(x^4y^7)] 
14xy/42x^5y^8
42=3*14
14/42= 14/(3*14)= 1/3
14xy/42x^5y^8 =
xy/3x^5y^8
Multiply with x^5*y^8
xy/3x^5y^8= x*y*x^5*y^8/3=
x^6*y^9/3
14xy/42x^5y^=xy/3x^5y^8=x^6*y^9/3 
alx answer is wrong

14xy/42x^5y^8= xy/3x^5y^8= x^6*y^9/3

"14xy/42x^5y^8= xy/3x^5y^8= x^6*y^9/3"
please check your answer. 
please help me with the factorization,findin the middle term
