Write as a fraction with denominator .

Multiply and .

To write the polynomial using negative exponents, take each expression individually.

Start with the expression . First, save the coefficient. Then, cycle through each variable. If the exponent is positive, switch it to negative and put the variable in the denominator of the answer.

A polynomial consists of terms, which are also known as monomials. The leading term in a polynomial is the highest degree term. In this case, the leading term in is the first term, which is .

The leading coefficient in a polynomial is the coefficient of the leading term. In this case, the leading term is and the leading coefficient is .

The exponent for variable is . Since the exponent is positive, switch it to negative and put the variable in the denominator.
