# How do you simplify (3m^-3r^4p^2)/(12t^4)?

Jun 11, 2018

$\frac{{r}^{4} {p}^{2}}{4 {m}^{3} {t}^{4}}$

#### Explanation:

Since we don't have any like variables on the top and bottom, we can't do anything with them. The only thing we can do is simplify $\frac{3}{12}$, which is $\frac{1}{4}$. Thus, we have

$\frac{{m}^{-} 3 {r}^{4} {p}^{2}}{4 {t}^{4}}$

We can even make the negative exponent positive by bringing it to the denominator. We now have

$\frac{{r}^{4} {p}^{2}}{4 {m}^{3} {t}^{4}}$

Hope this helps!
