    dividing monomials?!

    Hey- I THINK I have the answer to this right, but I'm posting this because I'm preparing for a test and I want to make SURE I know how to do this!

    the problem is:

    (3n^5w)^2
    __________
    (n^3)w)^0


    So, wouldn't the answer be 9n^10w^2 ?

    Once you distribute the power of 2, you would have 9n^10w^2. Then when you go to the bottom, you don't even have to do anything really. You know it's just 1, because anything to the power of 0 is 1. Am I right?! Shouldn't the final answer just be: 9n^10w^2 ?


    thanks
