Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large\rm m^3\color{orangered}{n^{6}}\color{royalblue}{p^0}\]To deal with the orange part, we'll use this rule:\[\large\rm \color{orangered}{x^{a}=\frac{1}{x^a}}\]We flip it! And the exponent becomes positive. Do deal with the blue part, Anything to the 0 power is 1. You can think of it like... p^1 is p. So p^0 is dividing p by itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large\rm m^3\color{orangered}{n^{6}}\color{royalblue}{p^0}=m^3\color{orangered}{n^{6}}\color{royalblue}{1}\]So that rule takes care of the blue part. Do you understand how the orange rule helps us? :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Anyway, exponent rule tells us to flip it, and change the exponent to positive,\[\large\rm m^3\color{orangered}{n^{6}}\color{royalblue}{p^0}=m^3\color{orangered}{\frac{1}{n^6}}\color{royalblue}{1}\]
