Simplify the following expression, and rewrite it in an equivalent form with positive exponents.
-14xy / 42x^5y^8
=-1/3 x^(1-5) y^(1-8)
=-1/3 x^-4 y^-7
-14/42= -14/(3*14)= -1/3
Multiply with x^5*y^8
alx answer is wrong
-14xy/42x^5y^8= -xy/3x^5y^8= -x^6*y^9/3
"-14xy/42x^5y^8= -xy/3x^5y^8= -x^6*y^9/3"
please check your answer.
please help me with the factorization,findin the middle term
