## Homework Statement

[tex]ln(6xy)-3ln(2y)-1/3 ln x + ln 20[/tex]

**The attempt at a solution**

I can get to [tex]ln\left(\frac{120xy}{8y^3x^1^/^3}\right)[/tex]

And then to

[tex]ln\left(\frac{120}{8}*\frac{x}{x^1^/^3}*\frac{y}{y^3}\right)[/tex]

But then I am supposed to do something to get to [tex]ln\left(\frac{15yx^2^/^3}{y^2}\right)[/tex]

What do I do? how does [tex]\frac{x}{x^1^/^3}[/tex] turn into [tex]x^2^/^3[/tex] and how does [tex]\frac{y}{y^3}[/tex] turn into [tex]y^2[/tex] ?
