so divide the numerator and denominator by 4 to simplify the coefficients

and with variables with exponents, just subtract the exponent in the denominator from the exponent in the numerator

\[\large \frac{16a^8}{12a^2}= \frac{16}{12}*\frac{a^8}{a^2}\] So you said 4 goes into 16 and 12... you have \[\large \frac{4}{3}*a^{8-2}\]
