    When multiplying exponents, you add the exponents.. \[\huge x^m * x^n = x^{m+n}\]

    Okay use the rule: \[\huge \frac{ x^m }{ x^n } = x^{m-n}\]

    you're doing algebra one, and you can't subtract fractions?... \[\huge \frac{ 2 }{ 3 } - \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } = ?\] \[\huge -\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } + \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } = ?\]
