    If you're just learning powers I like to start by expanding the power out \[\frac{b^8}{b^2} = \frac{b*b*b*b*b*b*b*b}{b*b}\] So we can cancel 2 b's on the top and bottom and we're left with.. \[b*b*b*b*b*b = b^6\]

    Does that make sense?

    Well I think you'll find that a similar approach works well on even more complicated problems. But if you have trouble feel free to ask.
