Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm \frac{ 9^2 }{ 9^7 }\] when we divide same bases we should ` subtract` exponents \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m}{ x^n }=x^{mn}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1aww you will be an expert \[\huge\rm \frac{ 9^2 }{ 9^7 }=9^{2\color{red}{}7}\] it should be 27

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we should subtract top exponent from the bottom exponent so it should be 27 and \[27\cancel{=}5\] sign error!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be 9 to the 5th power right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no 27 isn't equal to 5 remember when we subtract if bigger number is negative then answer would be negative !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would be 9 to the 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right now we need to convert negative to positive exponent so apply this exponent rule \[\huge\rm x^{m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m } \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 1/9 to the what power ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope look at this example \[\huge\rm x^{m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\] we don't want negative exponent that's the reason we should flip the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so change the sign when you flip it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm (x^m)^n=x^{m \times n}\] you just need to know exponents rules!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[5^{6}\] is same as \[9^{5}\] so how did you changed 9^5 to positive exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would it be1/5^3 juss a ruf guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember 5 to the 6 power is same as \[\huge\rm \frac{ 5^{6} }{ 1}\] now flip the fraction and change the sign of the exponent
