# Algebra

I am so confused with the rules of exponents. I know them, but I have a hard time applying them because of all the steps. I was wondering if someone would be willing to answer these questions, because I am unsure if my answers are right.

x to the third power y to the negative two power/x to the negative two power times y to the fourth power=

2x to the neg. second power (3x to the fourth - 6x to the econd)=

(-2x to the third)(-3x to the neg second) both expressions to the neg second

(2x to the second y to the negative second) to the third power

(2x to the negative fifth y to the fourth) to the third

Thank you your help is genuinely appreciated.
