Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1exponent rule \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{mn}\] there is negative exponent in the denominator so move that to the top

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1basses are same so just transfer 8 to the top here is an example \[\large\rm \frac{ 2^3 }{ 2^{5} } = x^{2\color{red}{+}5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then apply exponent rule \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n = x^{m+n}\]when you multiply same bases you should add their exponents

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i know ... reread what i said above then try to solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should familiar with the exponent rules you can't have the negative exponent there \[\huge\rm x^{m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm \frac{ \color{Red}{5^{6} \times 5^{2} }}{ 5^{8}}= \] first look at the numerator when you multiply same bases you should ADD their exponents \[\large\rm x^m \times x^n = x^{m+n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right \[\huge\rm \frac{ 5^{4} }{ 5^{8}}\] now move the 8 exponent to the top here is an example \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^{n} } = x^{m+(n)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you don't divide bases are the same right 5 is base and there is negative 8 exponent in the denominator move that to top of the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right  times 9 is = positive 9 so 3 +9 now look at ur question \[\huge\rm \frac{ 5^{4} }{ 5^{8} }= 5^{???}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how did you get 6 ?? :O

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so why did you say 6 ?? just add the exponent that's it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm \frac{ 5^{4} }{ 5^{8} }= 5^{\color{Red}{4(8)}}\] know how do solve red part(exponents ?
