# For Problems 11-24, perform the indicated operation and express your answers in simplest form. 10 x 4 y 3 8 x 2 y ÷ 5 x y 2 ⋅ 3 y x

To determine

To Perform:

The given operation and reduce it in simplest form.

Explanation

Rational expression demarcate as a quotient obtained by a division of two polynomials in the form of p(x)q(x) where p(x) and q(x) are polynomials in such a way that the variable x does not assume values such that q(x)=0.

If ab and cd are rational numbers, then the rational multiplication:

abâ‹…cd=aâ‹…cbâ‹…d=acbd

And the rational division:

If m and k are integers but not zero and n is any integer, then the two fractions nâ‹…kmâ‹…k and nm follow the fractionâ€™s fundamental principle as given below.

nâ‹…kmâ‹…k=nm.

Calculation:

The given rational expression is 10x4y38x2yÃ·5xy2â‹…3yx
