Simplify by removing factors of 1. (r^264)/(r+8)^2

I cannot figure this out! I know that the top is essentially the same as the bottom. SO what do I do?
(r^264)/(r+8)^2=
(r^264)/(r^2+64)=
0 ? 
not correct
do it this way ...
(r^264)/(r+8)^2
= (r+8)(r8)/[(r+8)(r+8)]
= (r8)/(r+8) 
Geez. Thank you so much.
