How do I figure out n5 / n2?

Posted in Algebra, asked by Jack, 6 years ago. 1774 hits.


we have some formula for to do this type of simple problems


we will put the given problem in the formula,then n^5/n^2=n^5-2=n^3

we have to learn some formulas to get these type of problems very easily.

First understand that n^5 mens n is multiplied by itself 5 times. That is n^5 = n x n x n x n x n  .

similarly n^2 = n x n

Now n ^5/ n^2  = n x n x n as we can cancel other n-terms from numerator and denominator.

thus the formula can be whenever we divid powers with the same base, we subtract the exponents. In general , a ^m / a^n = a^(m-n).

n5 / n²

numerator and denominator have same bases so we write base only ones but power of denominator will inverse. 

n 5-2

n³ Ans
