How to simplify x^12/x^-3
Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.
Remember when you multiply the same variable by itself, you add the exponents and when you divide you subtract the exponents.
This problem is division so it would be X12- (-3) which becomes X^12+3 which gives an answer of X^ 15
This can be rewritten as;
x12 ÷ x-3
remember that xa ÷ xb is the same as x(a-b)
so we'd have;
x(12 + 3)
