Find the quotient 21 π to the power of six π divided by seven ππ.
00:00:09.120 --> 00:00:21.130
In order to answer this question, we need to consider one of the laws of indices: π₯ to the power of π divided by π₯ to the power of π is equal to π₯ to the power of π minus π.
00:00:21.560 --> 00:00:26.080
When we are dividing, we need to subtract the exponents or indices.
00:00:27.930 --> 00:00:36.290
Letβs consider 21 π to the power of six π or π to the power of one divided by seven ππ.
00:00:37.740 --> 00:00:40.840
Well, 21 divided by seven is equal to three.
00:00:42.560 --> 00:00:49.160
π to the power of six divided by π is π to the power of five as six minus one is five.
00:00:50.550 --> 00:00:56.770
And π divided by π is π to the power of zero as one minus one is zero.
00:00:57.850 --> 00:01:04.420
As we know that anything to the power of zero is equal to one, the answer is three π to the power of five.
00:01:05.670 --> 00:01:12.490
21 π to the power of six π divided by seven ππ is three π to the power of five.
