If anyone could help me out with this problem it would be appreciated.
6^2 x^-4y^-1 divided by 6^3 x ^-3 y^7
I understand you move the negatives down or up, but do you need to square the numbers for it to be in simplest form?
I got 6^2 x ^3 divided by 6^3 x^4 y^8 but I dont know if this is correct.

I hope you understand that when you say 'move' that you are using the correct property of exponents.
I see. Thanks for your help.
