simplify 4^8/4^4
Would this be 4^4 the correct answer?

math 
Steve,
when dividing, subtract exponents, giving
4^(8(4)) = 4^12
Your answer is 4^8 / 4^4
4^8/4^4 = 4^8 / (1/4^4) = 4^8 * 4^4/1 = 4^12

math 
B8,
so you are saying 4^4 is the same as 1/4^4.
Thank you for trying to explain this but I am still alittle confused.
