The simplified form of the expression is xzy_

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The expression is xy/z

Formula used:

If a, b, care any numbers then abc it can be rewrite as a1bc and expressed by a×c1×b

Calculation:

Consider the provided expression xy/z

Recall that,

If a, b, care any numbers then abc it can be rewrite as a1bc and expressed by a×c1×b Apply it in the above expression.

Re-writ the above expression as:
