Reducing may be done updown, NOT

Solution: Look for possible items to reduce  one from the top with one from the bottom. Expanding the exponents may be helpful if you are having trouble working with powers.
Solution:
Look for possible items to reduce. In this
problem,
Remember that with division, it is necessary to "flip" the second fraction
and change the operation to multiplication
(just as you did with

Again, remember that with division, it is necessary to "flip" the second fraction
and change the operation to multiplication. Factor first:
