simplify 4^8/4^-4

Would this be 4^4 the correct answer?

  • math -

    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 -

    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.
