# How do you simplify 8/(2c^-3)?

Feb 13, 2016

$4 {c}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{8}{2}$ can be simplified to $4$. That means:

$\frac{8}{2 {c}^{- 3}} = \frac{4}{c} ^ \left(- 3\right)$

Also we know that $\frac{1}{a} ^ \left(- x\right) = {a}^{x}$ so using this we can bring the $c$ up from the bottom to get:

$\frac{4}{{c}^{- 3}} = 4 {c}^{3}$
