i need help on an equation

(5b^3a^3-15a^2b^4)/5a^2b^2

i hope you can understand that

The first term, 5*b^3 * a^3, when divided by 5 * a^2 * b^2 gives ab.

That is because 5/5 = 1, a^3 / a^2 = a, and b^3 / b^2 = b.

That makes the 1st term reduce to ab.

Doing the same thing for the 2nd term, we get -15a^2b^4/(5a^2b^2) = -3b^2.

Thus, combining these gives ab - 3b^2.
