# Algebra

Can you please let me know if I have worked this problem correctly:

425x11^y-7^z / 560x14^y-5^z-16

3y-2^ / 4x3^z-15^

I am not sure this is correct because we shouldn't have any negative exponents in our final answer.

Thank you

1. Your notation is not acceptable

did you mean y^11 instead of 11^y ?
is x a variable or a multiplication sign ?

The way you typed it we are dividing by only 560,
you will need brackets otherwise.

2. this is how the question reads on my homework...I apologize for the confusion.

425X11^Y-7^Z
____________
560X14^Y-5^Z-16^

X to the 11th power....Y to -7th power
X to the 14th power....Y to -5th power
The answer is not supposed to have negatives in it. So, would i just divide 425/560 to get 3/4 and then subtract the exponents?
