$\large {x^a \over x^b }= x^{a-b}$

simplify the constants, just like you would in grade school, then use the property I just gave you to simplify the variables

it's all division, so you can rewrite it as $\frac{ 16 }{ -8 } \times \frac{ x^2 }{ x^2 } \times \frac{ y^4 }{ y^3 }$ then simplify from that and re-multiply everything together, if that helps you to figure out the concept
