For example: = abc abc Quotient Rule of Exponents: If you have a fraction with a monomial on the top and bottom with the same base, you can simplify by subtracting the denominators monomials exponent from the numerators monomials exponent. For example: =abac ab c Here is one expression to simplify it has it all a2 a35a2 : Hint Finish off the paranthesis by simplifying inside...
