## anonymous one year ago Easy medal Simplify 10^6 over 10^-3 1 over 10^3 1 over 10^10 10^3 10^9 I think I would be c I'm just not sure

1. Nnesha

why do you think its c ?

2. anonymous

Because 10^6 -10^3 would make it 10^3

3. anonymous

am I right or can you correct me?

4. Nnesha

now you are not multiplying when you multiply same bases then you should add their exponents for this question you need to apply this rule $\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n}=x^{m-n}$

5. Nnesha

move exponent from denominator to the top when you do that signs would change |dw:1438904081704:dw|

6. Nnesha

sign*

7. anonymous

So how would that relate to any of the answers

8. anonymous

It confuses me

9. Nnesha

here is another example $\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^{-n} }=x^{m+n}$

10. anonymous

So it would be D(:
