# How do you simplify #(80x^4)/y^4*(xy)/(5x^2)#?

The multiplication sign allows us to cancel the numbers.

Do this first and then combine the like bases at the top and the bottom by adding the indices. This makes the final simplification of the variables quicker and easier.

To simplify the expression (80x^4)/y^4 * (xy)/(5x^2), we can combine the terms and simplify the variables.

First, let's simplify the numerator: (80x^4) * (xy) = 80x^5y

Next, let's simplify the denominator: y^4 * (5x^2) = 5x^2y^4

Now, we can simplify the entire expression by dividing the numerator by the denominator: (80x^4)/y^4 * (xy)/(5x^2) = (80x^5y) / (5x^2y^4)

To simplify further, we can divide the coefficients and subtract the exponents of the variables: (80/5) * (x^5/x^2) * (y/y^4) = 16x^(5-2)y^(1-4)

Simplifying the exponents: 16x^3y^(-3)

Therefore, the simplified expression is 16x^3/y^3.
