# How do you simplify u^3v^-1 and write it using only positive exponents?

Use this rule of exponents to simplify the expression using only positive exponents: ${x}^{\textcolor{red}{a}} = \frac{1}{x} ^ \textcolor{red}{- a}$
${u}^{3} {v}^{\textcolor{red}{- 1}} = {u}^{3} / {v}^{\textcolor{red}{- - 1}} = {u}^{3} / {v}^{1}$
