3.simpify and write with only positive exponents (7x^3y^2)/(x^4y^9)^3
4.
find the solution of the inequality
2x11 is less than or equal to 4(5x3)
5. the length of a recangle is 5 feet less than twice the width. the area is 25 square feet. using w as the variable. write an equation that can be used to calculate the width.

Any help would be appreciated. This is for my study guide in order to do well on my test. Someone please help.

#1
From the first, y=3x11
Plug that into the second:
5x+3x11 = 12
2x = 23
x = 23/2
y = 91/2
Or, you can just add the equations to eliminate the y terms:
5x = 23
...
#2 Your parentheses are unbalanced. If you mean
5/(x2) + 4/(x^22x)
5/(x2) + 4/(x(x2))
5x/(x(x2)) + 4/(x(x2))
(5x+4)/(x(x2))
(5x+4)/(x^22x)
#3
(7x^3y^2)/(x^4y^9)^3
(x^4y^9)^3 = x^12 y^27
Since you're dividing by that, you have
(7x^3y^2)*(x^12 y^27)
7x^9 y^25
7y^25/x^9

#4.
2x11 <= 4(5x3)
2x11 <= 20x + 12
22x <= 23
x <= 23/22
#5.
length is 2w5
area is 25, so
w(2w5) = 25
2w^25w = 25
2w^2  5w  25 = 0
(2w+5)(w5) = 0
w=5 (5/2 is not a usable width)
the rectangle is a square 5x5
