# How do you simplify 3^4 / 5^3?

Jul 1, 2018

$\frac{81}{125}$

#### Explanation:

${3}^{4} = 3 \cdot 3 \cdot 3 \cdot 3 = 9 \cdot 9 = 81$
${5}^{3} = 5 \cdot 5 \cdot 5 = 25 \cdot 5 = 125$

Unfortunately, this does not seem like it can be simplified further, So you can leave it in exponential form like you were given, or use the numerical fraction form below:

$\frac{81}{125}$
