# What is 12*12div12*12 to the power of 2?

Apr 26, 2017

$1$, if the question is $\frac{12 \cdot 12}{12 \cdot 12}$

#### Explanation:

I'm not sure if the expression is written correctly, but if the question

is $\frac{12 \cdot 12}{12 \cdot 12}$, then the solution is $1$.

$\frac{12 \cdot 12}{12 \cdot 12}$ is the same thing as $\frac{12}{12} \times \frac{12}{12}$.

If this is now raised to the 2nd power, the answer remains $1$

${\left(\frac{12}{12} \times \frac{12}{12}\right)}^{2}$

${1}^{2} = 1$

And any value over itself simplifies to $1$, be it $\frac{50000}{50000}$ or $\frac{.011}{.011}$.

$1 \times 1$ is $1$, so the solution is $1$
