Simplify
36x^2 y^4 a^2
____________________
72a x^1 y
^ means power
Divide both numerator and denominator by 36 which will give you 1/2. Then the a^2 on top will tranfer to the bottom becoming a^2 and that will combine with the a already there to become a^3. Proceed with each a, x, and y for the final answer. We shall be happy to check your final result if you wish.
Is this the answear to 36x^2 y^4 a^2

2 a^3 x y^5
No. Remember to change the sign of the exponent when moving a variable from top to bottom or from bottom to top. THEN combine terms. I would move the negative ones first (X^1 on the bottom and a^2 on top). Then combine the positive and negative variable into one exponent.
Ok Dan, here's a suggestion line the variable up over each other like
36x^2 y^4 a^2
________________
x^1 y 72a
Then add or subtract corresponding exponents. For x we have 2 1, for y, 43, for a, 21. Show your work when you're done.
