## anonymous 4 years ago im confused with manipulating powers. For example how would you go along answering 12xto the 5th power over 3xto the seventh power?

1. anonymous

$12x^{5}/3x ^{7}$

2. TuringTest

The rule to use here is$\frac{x^a}{x^b}=x^{a-b}$and the coefficients you can just divide normally.

3. anonymous

oh. thank you!
