Q:
# Which expression is equivalent to -18a^-2b^5/-12a^-4b^-6?

Accepted Solution

A:

first divide the coefficients:-

-18 / -12 = 3/2

a^-2 / a^-4 = a^2

b^-5 / b^-6 = b

so the expression simplifies to 3a^2b / 2

-18 / -12 = 3/2

a^-2 / a^-4 = a^2

b^-5 / b^-6 = b

so the expression simplifies to 3a^2b / 2
