## anonymous one year ago solve ﻿8 to the power of 5 over 8 to the power of 3 show work

1. marigirl

think of it like $\frac{ 8\times8\times8\times8\times8 }{ 8\times8\times8 }$

2. marigirl

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

3. anonymous

that's what i tried but im still confused

4. anonymous

16

5. anonymous

you end up with 16

6. marigirl

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

7. marigirl

i think u mean 64 ..

$$\bf \cfrac{\cancel{ 8}\times\cancel{ 8}\times\cancel{ 8}\times8\times8 }{ \cancel{ 8}\times \cancel{ 8}\times \cancel{ 8}}\implies ?$$
