simplify 4^8/4^-4

Would this be 4^4 the correct answer?

• math -

when dividing, subtract exponents, giving

4^(8-(-4)) = 4^12

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.
