# How do you find the quotient 8^4/8^3?

We will use this rule of exponents to find the quotient: ${x}^{\textcolor{red}{a}} / {x}^{\textcolor{b l u e}{b}} = {x}^{\textcolor{red}{a} - \textcolor{b l u e}{b}}$
${8}^{\textcolor{red}{4}} / {8}^{\textcolor{b l u e}{3}} = {8}^{\textcolor{red}{4} - \textcolor{b l u e}{3}} = {8}^{1} = 8$
