Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You never leave your answers with negative exponents unless it's called for. Therefore \[\frac{1}{12^4} = \frac{1}{12\cdot 12\cdot 12\cdot 12}\] Whatever that is is your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Jhannybean its asking to just simplfy it ..... so i think we may just write in exponential form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can have various simplifications @rishavraj either in positive exponential form, fully expanded form, or even negative exponent form. They would all be correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{12^{3}}{12^7} = 12^{4} =\frac{1}{12^4} = \frac{1}{20736}\] TRy solving the next one yourself @Spring98
