    think of it like \[\frac{ 8\times8\times8\times8\times8 }{ 8\times8\times8 }\]

    you can cancel out 3 of the 8 at the top from 3 of the 8 at the bottom right? and now your left with two 8 at the top..... can you see this with the powwers? what can we do the powers to end up with 8^2

    lets leave it in power form \[\frac{ 8^5 }{ 8^3 } = 8^2\]

    \(\bf \cfrac{\cancel{ 8}\times\cancel{ 8}\times\cancel{ 8}\times8\times8 }{ \cancel{ 8}\times \cancel{ 8}\times \cancel{ 8}}\implies ?\)
