    if u notice the f's on the top and the bottom have the same number of exponents...so you can cancel them out

    then 6 goes into 54 9 times so the 6 becomes 1 and the 54 becomes 9

    when you post your questions; make sure you space adequately between terms at least... that way they are easier to decipher :)

    why do I thinkthat when you divid a variable like g/g ; they cancel out

    but the g on the denominator is to the power of negative 5 so really it moves to the numerator...so the numerator becomes g^8

    then since its h^5 on top and h^3 on bottom..its like having 5 h's on top and 3 h's on bottom so three of them cancel out...leaving you with h^2 on top
