You would have fried the potatoes.

¿Qué habrías hecho tú en mi situación?
What would you have done in my situation?

Él no te habría contradicho enfrente de tus alumnos.
He wouldn't have contradicted you in front of your pupils.

Notice how the endings of the participles are -to or -cho.

Special case: verb "pudrir/pudrirse" (to rot/to go off)

This verb doesn't change the ending to -to or -cho; it keeps the irregular form -ido, however the -u from the stem changes to -o. 

Pudrir -> podrido

"Si hubieras dejado la carne fuera del frigorífico, se habría podrido."

(If you had left the meat outside the fridge, it would have gone off.)

Hola Emanuel

Yes, that is covered in a different lesson about the hypothetical "if". Here are two of these lessons:

"Si" followed by El Imperfecto de Subjuntivo.

"Si" followed by El Pluscuamperfecto de Subjuntivo.

I hope this helps,

Saludos

Inma
