Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Use this rule of exponents to simplify this expression:

#x^color(red)(a)/x^color(blue)(b) = x^(color(red)(a)-color(blue)(b))#

#(8yx^color(red)(-1))/(5x^color(blue)(-2)) = (8yx^(color(red)(-1)-color(blue)(-2)))/5 = (8yx^(color(red)(-1)+color(blue)(2)))/5 = (8x^1y)/5#

Now, use this rule of exponents to complete the simplification:

#a^color(red)(1) = a#

#(8x^color(red)(1)y)/5 = (8xy)/5#
