Simplify the expressionSimplify the expression $\frac{10^{3n/2}\times15^{n/2}\times6^{n/6}}{45^{n/3}\times20^{2n/3}}$ and hence find its value when n = 2. The challenge I am facing here is that I can't find a common factor or base for the numerator and denominator of the given problem. Could somebody help me out? |

Hint: $\displaystyle \large\frac{10^{3n/2}\times15^{n/2}\times6^{n/6}}{45^{n/3} \times 20^{2n/3}} = \frac{2^{3n/2}5^{3n/2}\times3^{n/2}5^{n/2} \times 2^{n/6}3^{n/6}}{3^{2n/3}5^{n/3} \times 2^{4n/3}5^{2n/3}}$. |

When I finished simplifying, I got it in the most simplified form as $2^{n/3}\times5^n$. What do you think about the answer? When n=2, the value of the expression becomes $2^{2/3}\times25$. |

You can simplify the first exponent in your answer by cancelling 2. When evaluating the expression for $n$ = 2, you should not change × to +. |
