How do I simply 4^1x^0/y^1
possible answers:
1/4y
4y
y/4
4
I really don't get these but I think it might be y/4 because you take the negative to the top and the negative to the bottom, right?

remember that x^(a) = 1/x^a
and a^0  1 for all a>0
4^1x^0/y^1
= (1/4)(x^0)(1/y)
= (1/4)(1)(1/y)
= 1/(4y)
(they should not have written the answer as 1/4y , it would mean (1/4) y ) 
The way you explained it, I can understand itthe way my teacher explained itI was still confused
Thank you very much
