Hi everyone,
I am having trouble with an indices problem, which i tried several times but couldn't figure out. Your help would be greatly appreciated!!

[8^(2n-1) x 12^(n+2)] / [(6^n) x 18]

Thanks

8^(2n-1) x 12^(n+2) / (6^n) x 18
$\begin{gathered} 8^{2n - 1} = 2^{6n - 3} \hfill \\ 12^{n + 2} = 2^{2n + 4} \cdot 3^{n + 2} \hfill \\ 6^n = 2^n \cdot 3^n \hfill \\ 18 = 2 \cdot 3^2 \hfill \\ \end{gathered}$
