00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:10.360
Simplify 14π₯ to the 10th divided by seven π₯ to the fourth plus four π₯ to the sixth, where π₯ is not equal to zero.
00:00:11.120 --> 00:00:13.760
First, we must work inside the parentheses.
00:00:14.200 --> 00:00:15.520
So we need to divide.
00:00:16.240 --> 00:00:19.040
So we divide our numbers.
00:00:19.520 --> 00:00:22.320
14 divided by seven is two.
00:00:22.880 --> 00:00:27.880
But now we need to divide like bases with exponents.
00:00:28.520 --> 00:00:38.120
When dividing with like bases, for example, π₯ to the π divided by π₯ to the π, we can subtract their exponents.
00:00:38.520 --> 00:00:42.080
So itβs equal to π₯ to the π minus π power.
00:00:42.600 --> 00:00:47.240
So we will have two π₯ to the 10 minus four power.
00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:58.880
So before we add, we need to take 10 minus four, resulting in two π₯ to the sixth plus four π₯ to the sixth.
00:00:59.760 --> 00:01:03.400
We have a like basis of π₯.
00:01:04.120 --> 00:01:07.080
And adding with like bases is pretty simple.
00:01:07.640 --> 00:01:10.280
We simply add the numbers in front.
00:01:10.840 --> 00:01:13.400
And two plus four is six.
00:01:14.000 --> 00:01:16.920
And then we keep the like base of π₯ to the sixth power.
00:01:17.520 --> 00:01:21.640
So our final answer is six π₯ to the sixth power.
