Work Step by Step

We are given the expression $\frac{(30z^{2})(z^{5})}{55z^{-4}}$. We can first use the product rule to simplify. $\frac{(30z^{2})(z^{5})}{55z^{-4}}=\frac{30z^{2+5}}{55z^{-4}}=\frac{30z^{7}}{55z^{-4}}$ Next, we can use the quotient to further simplify. $\frac{30z^{7}}{55z^{-4}}=\frac{30}{55}\times(z^{7-(-4)})=\frac{6z^{11}}{11}$
