# How do you simplify a^6/a^3?

Use this rule for exponents to simplify: ${x}^{\textcolor{red}{a}} / {x}^{\textcolor{b l u e}{b}} = {x}^{\textcolor{red}{a} - \textcolor{b l u e}{b}}$
${a}^{\textcolor{red}{6}} / {a}^{\textcolor{b l u e}{3}} = {a}^{\textcolor{red}{6} - \textcolor{b l u e}{3}} = {a}^{3}$
