  1. It helps to know the rules for multiplying and dividing exponents when tackling these types of problems.

    Check out the rules and see if you come up with this simplification:
    x^5(y^5)/2

    I hope this will help.

    Simplify (2xy^2+3)((2xy^2)^2-(2xy^2)(3)+(3)^2) This reminds me of (U+a)(U^2- aU + a^2). When mulipltiplied out, one gets a cubic equation. Do you remember the formula for factoring the sum of two cubes? a^3+b^3= ????

    Use Pascal's triangle to expand the expression. (x − y)5 so I tried to work this out: (x-y)^5 = [(x-y)(x-y)][(x-y)(x-y)](x-y) (x-y)^2 = (x-y)(x-y) = x^2 - 2xy + y^2 x^2 - 2xy + y^2)(x^2 - 2xy + y^2) = x^4 -4x^3y + 6x^2y^2 -

    Can 2xy - y - 1 be factored out? How? about all you can do is take the common y out of the first two terms; that in itself is not much help. dont know if this is rite or not..but just a guess.. assuming 2xy - y - 1 = 0 2xy - y = 1
