I need a little more help over here...?

so i was doing my math homework and there was this: (233^-3 x 233^6) / (233^-3 x 233^9). im stuck on this problem and ive been spending an hour trying to solve the problem. so far i shortened it to 233^3/233^6 because of the rule thing but im stuck on it now and dont know what to do next. what do i do to solve this problem, someone plz explain??? thank you for your time and consideration.

Both of these answers are correct. The rule is a^m/a^n = a^(m-n)
If they have the same base (233), then you need to subtract the powers (num - denom).
Your base stays the same
233^-3 = (1) / 233^3 = 7.905552678^ -08

Doesn't what you shortened it to equal 233^-3?

If so, just calculate it: (1) / 233^3 if i read it right.
