    Same as before. Add one to the power and divide by the new power. Remember that when you divide by a fraction, it is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal of that fraction.

    so if i divide y by 3/2 is that the same as -2/3y or 2/3y??

    I don't like your notation. You need brackets or it looks like the y is on the denominator of the fraction. You don't need a negative sign. You are just finding a reciprocal not a negative reciprocal.

    I kinda figured:lol: ill make sure to put a bracket next time to avoid confusion and I assumed it was negative reciprocal automatically but that makes sense now!
