## anonymous 3 years ago Simplify using properties of exponents. 16x^2/3 / 4x^1/4 A. 4x^5/12 B. 4x^1/12 C. 4x^5/3 D. 12x^1/12 (i will draw it out in comment)

$16x^{2/3}=16x^{8/12}$

|dw:1352517269250:dw|

3. anonymous

$4x^{1/4} =4x^{3/12}$

4. anonymous

so you get this|dw:1352513681003:dw|

5. anonymous

now you have two fractions the same so use your exponent properties =]

6. anonymous

so it would be a?

7. anonymous

yep =]

8. anonymous

thank you

your real job is to divide 16 by 4 and get 4 (that is the easy part) and then subtract $\frac{2}{3}-\frac{1}{4}$ for your exponent that part is arithmetic
