Could someone please show me the intermediate steps of rewriting this

$$\pi(p,w) = p(\frac{w}{pa})^{\frac{a}{a-1}}-w(\frac{w}{pa})^{\frac{1}{a-1}}$$

to this

$$\pi(p,w) = w(\frac{1-a}{a})(\frac{w}{ap})^{\frac{1}{a-1}}$$

Thank you Alan,

I made some foolish mistake at

$$p*(\frac{w}{p*a})^{\frac{a}{a-1}} = p*(\frac{w}{p*a})^{\frac{a-1}{a-1}+ \frac{1}{a-1}}$$

 

Thank you
