How To: Divide numbers with exponents

Divide numbers with exponents

In this tutorial, we learn how to divide numbers with exponents. The quotient rule states that we can divide two powers with the same base by subtracting the exponents. With the same base, you can subtract the exponents to get something that would be the answer. For example, if you have 6(to the fourth) divided by 6(to the second), this would come to equal 6(to 4-2). This would break down to equal 6(to the second power). Once you have this, you will be able to do the math for this and figure out what the answer to the equation is!
