Answer:

See the entire simplification process below:

Explanation:

We will use these three rules for exponents to simplify this expression:

#a^color(red)(0) = 1#

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

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

#(4r^2v^color(red)(0)t^5)/(2rt^3) = (4r^(2)1t^5)/(2r^color(red)(1)t^3) = (4r^2t^5)/(2r^1t^3) = 2r^(2-1)t^(5-3) = 2r^1t^2 = 2rt^2#
