Work Step by Step

RECALL: (i) The quotients-to-powers rule states that: $(\frac{a}{b})^n=\frac{a^n}{b^n}$ (ii) The products-to-powers rule states that: $(xy)^n = x^ny^n$ Use the quotients-to-powers rule to find: $=\dfrac{(x^5)^6}{(y^3)^6}$ Use the product-to-powers rule to find: $\\=\dfrac{x^{5(6)}}{y^{3(6)}} \\=\dfrac{x^{30}}{y^{18}}$
