Simplify:
(ab)/(a^1b^1)

here is my take:
you know that x^1 = 1/x
so in the denominator you have
(a^1)  (b^1) = 1/a  1/b
you need to have the same denominator, which you get by multiplying both in the numerator and denominatorby the other fraction's denominatior
so you get:
(b/ab) (a/ab) = (ba/ ab)
the whole expression looks as this:
(ab)/[ba/ab] <=> ab(ab)/(ba)
multiplying inside the bracket you get:
[(a^2)b  a(b^2)] / (ba)
hope this helps...otherwise some other genious may help u :D ..goodluck.
