# Hampton has a baseball card collection of #5^6# cards. He organizes the cards into boxes that hold #5^4# each. How many boxes will Hampton need to hold the cards?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Hampton's total cards

He has boxes holding

You need to divide the total number of boxes by the number of cards held per box to determine the number of boxes required.

Therefore your answer is:

#BN = (5^6) / (5^4)" "# ; where#BN = "Boxes Needed"# .

When dividing the same number with exponents you subtract the exponents, therefore:

#BN = 5^2 = 25#
