If \(\frac{(a^2 b^{-3}c)^{\frac{3}{4}}}{a^{-1}b^{4}c^{5}}=a^{p} b^{q} c^{r}\) What is the value of p+2q?

If \(\frac{(a^2 b^{-3}c)^{\frac{3}{4}}}{a^{-1}b^{4}c^{5}}=a^{p} b^{q} c^{r}\) What is the value of p+2q?
  • A. (5/2)
  • B. -(5/4)
  • C. -(25/4)
  • D. -10
Correct Answer: Option D
Hint: apply basic mathematics rules beginning from BODMAS to algebra, and follow solution carefully to arrive at p =(5/2), q = -(25/4) and r = -(9/2).

Then p+2q will give you \(\frac{5}{2}+2\left(\frac{-25}{4}\right)= -10\)

at least this one has been solved, for me i'd just say use the indicies law, calculate in d power for all of them i.e a,b and c then equate the answers to the unknown variables of the respective base i.e p,q and r after you have done that, solve like normal plus and minus, your ansa will appear

From laws of indices a^x/a^y=x-y..

a^p=3/2-(-1/1)=3+2/2 =5/2


b^q=-9/4-4/1=-9-16/4 =-25/4
