to clarify when you say 1 - x^3 / x^1/2, do you mean 1 - (x^3 / x^1/2) or (1 - x^3) / (x^1/2)?

______________________________________________________________

If you mean 1 - (x^3 / x^1/2), then it would be (x^0)-(x^(5/2)), assuming x$$\ne$$0.

If you mean (1 - x^3) / (x^1/2), then it would be $$\frac{\sqrt{x}}{x}-x^{\frac{5}{2}}$$. However, i cannot find a way to have this answer in the form of x^a-x^b.
