I just figured out my mistake. It was in my subtraction. It's amazing how one little thing can affect the whole problem. Thanks again

So you got:
(a^2 * b^11) / (2 * c^2 * a)

That's not really incorrect: just needs one further simplification:
(a * b^11) / (2 * c^2)
...which you say you got...so all's well

Well i think that is quiet simple just subtract the exponents of same variable below fraction from the exponents of variable above fraction. Thats the central idea.
