[00:00:28] hi one sec

Barbara W (Tutor)
[00:00:33] OK

Guest (Customer)
[00:01:23] i need help solving this

Barbara W (Tutor)
[00:01:35] OK. So do you know how to start?

Guest (Customer)
[00:01:38] no

Barbara W (Tutor)
[00:02:56] OK. We have variables in the denominator as well as the numerator, and we have some negative exponents. Usually we want to write the expression with no negative exponents. Is that what the directions say?

Guest (Customer)
[00:03:06] yes

Barbara W (Tutor)
[00:03:46] OK. Do you remember how to change an expression from one with a negative exponent to one with a positive exponent?
