    \[\huge\rm (x^m)^n = x^{m \times n}\] m and n are exponents \[\huge\rm \frac{ (12^{-5} )^2}{ 12^{-4} }\] first deal with the numerator \[(12^{-5})^2 = ???\]

    no we still have 12^{-4} in the denominator \[\frac{ 12^{-10} }{ 12^{-4} }\]

    \[\huge\rm \frac{ 12^{-10} }{ 12^{-4} }=12^{???}\] apply the negative exponent rule
