$C ^{8}d ^{-12 } \over c ^{-4?}d ^{-8}$

2. anonymous

Don't mind the ? mark at the bottom careless mistake putting it there

3. anonymous

How would I go about solving this problem?

when you have a number multiplying or dividing other that is equal to the first you can add or subtract their exponents respectively $(\frac{ c^{8} }{ c^{-4} } *\frac{ d^{-12} }{ d^{-8} } )$ ${ c^{8-(-4)}} * { d^{-12-(-8)}}$ ${ c^{12}} * { d^{-4}}$
