How do you simplify #(2^0)^3 /( 2^3•3^3)#?
First step is to remove the brackets - multiply the indices.
In the denominator there are a few options - depending what is regarded as being 'simpler'.
We could simply leave it as it is, in index form with prime bases.
We could use the power form: 8 x 27, to get 216.
We could write it as
I prefer the third option - knowing the squares and cubes makes simplifying easier than having multiply.
