# How do you simplify (4x^2)^2/(2x^2)^2?

${\left(4 {x}^{2}\right)}^{2} / {\left(2 {x}^{2}\right)}^{2} = \frac{16 \cancel{{x}^{4}}}{4 \cancel{{x}^{4}}} = \frac{16}{4} = 4$
${\left(4 {x}^{2}\right)}^{2} / {\left(2 {x}^{2}\right)}^{2} = \frac{16 \cancel{{x}^{4}}}{4 \cancel{{x}^{4}}} = \frac{16}{4} = 4$
