### Subject: Algebra

Hey, I need help solving this problem: Simplify. a^5b^4/a^3b^2

No problem. The first step is that we must remember one of our rules of exponents: When we have base x raised to exponent m and another base x raised to exponent n, then the answer is the base x raised to the difference of m and n. So that means that the answer is base x ^ m-n . The first step would be to subtract the exponents of similar bases : a^5-3 and b^4-2 , which would leave you with a^2b^2/1 which is = to a^2b^2
