Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Kaelyn78 see \[a^m \times a^n = a^{m + n} ~~~ and ~~~~(a^m)^{n} = a^{mn} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so \[a^8 \times a^6 = a^{14} ~~~and (a^{14})^{\frac{ 1 }{ 7 }} = a^{\frac{ 14 }{ 7 }}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the equation simplified is \[a \frac{ 14 }{ 7 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the equation u get is \[\frac{ a^{\frac{ 14 }{ 7 }} }{ a^2 } = \frac{ a^2 }{ a^2 } = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\large \frac{ a^{\frac{ 14 }{ 7 }} }{ a^2 } = \frac{ a^2 }{ a^2 } \rightarrow a^{22} \rightarrow a^0 = 1\] a step was skipped due to the zero exponent, our result will always be 1
