    make it first look like sqrt(6)*t^-7

    notice that sqrt (6) is constant. and t^-7 is the variable you are worrying about.

    can i not use the power rule then quotient rule?

    because this is simply exponent derivative,you not need to worry about quotient rule , power rule.

    \[\large f(t) = \frac{\sqrt{6}}{t^7} = \sqrt{6}t^{-7}\]\[\large f'(t) = \sqrt{6} \cdot -7 t^{-7-1} \]\[\large f'(t) = -7 \sqrt{6}t^{-8}\]\[\large f'(t) = \frac{-7\sqrt{6}}{t^8}\]

    power rule and quotient rule is applicable in more complicated setting where you have f(x)*g(x) .

    You should know that \[\large \frac{d}{dx} x^{n} =\frac{nx^{n-1}}{n-1}\]
