simplify

5p^5q^4 /12n^4 / 15p^2 q/ 3mn^2

There is just so much here I have no idea where to start

• math -

would it be 3p^3q^4 / 4mn^2

• math -

5p^5q^4 /12n^4 / 15p^2 q/ 3mn^2

try writing as

5p^5q^4 /12n^4
-----------------
15p^2 q/ 3mn^2

which is
5p^5q^4 /12n^4 * 3mn^2/15p^2 q

5 p^5 q^4 3 m n^2
------------------
12 n^4 15 p^2 q

(5*3)/(12*15) = 1/12

p^5/p^2 = p^3

q^4/q^1 = q^3

m = m

n^2/n^4 = n^-2
