I need to see a chart that shows the rule for dividing by exponents
like 8 (8divided by 8) exponent

Lauren explained it well. When dividing with exponents the rule is x^{a}/x^{b }= x^{a-b}. However, if you have a negative exponent you have to flip it. Such as x^{-a}/x^{-b} = x^{b}/x^{a} = x^{b-a}.
Hope this helps you! Let me know if you have any additional questions :)
When you have x^{a}/x^{b}, the rule is x^{a-b}. If you are referring to rational exponents, then you are actually talking about using the radical rules. For example x^{1/2 }is actually the squareroot of x.
Hope this helps!
I'm not sure I understand your question. Do you mean the rule for things like this?
8^{8/8}
When you have numbers instead of variables, it is often easiest to simplify. In this example, 8/8 = 1, so the problem becomes
8^{1}
= 8
Here are some general exponent rules that might help you:
(a^{x})^{y}=a^{xy}
For example;
(3^{2})^{5 }= 3^{2•5}=3^{10}
Here are some other general rules with numeric examples:
a^{x}a^{y} = a^{x+y}
5^{7}5^{2} = 5^{7+2} = 5^{10}
1/a^{x}=a^{-x}
1/3^{2} = 3^{-2}
a^{x}/a^{y} = a^{x-y}
6^{4}/6^{3} = 6^{4-3} = 6^{1} = 6
