    one of the laws of exponents \(\huge \frac{ax^m}{bx^n} =\frac{a}{b} x^{m-n}\)

    example: \(\huge \frac{3x^8}{4x^5} = \frac{3}{4}x^{8-5}\)

    do you know fractions at all? how else would you simplify 3/4? and how would you simplify 8-5

    you would simplify 8-5 by subtracting it

    and you'll simplify 3/4 by dividing both sides by 2?

    would the answer be 1/2 to the 3rd power?

    why would you divide it by 2? is 3 divisible by 2 to get a whole number ?

    you cannot simplify 3/4 any further!
