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.

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
