Simplify \(^{(x^{25})^{-6}}/_{(x^{-3})^{48}}\).

The power of \(x\) in the simplified expression is \(\boxed{\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\downarrow}\).

 

\(\boxed{\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\downarrow}\\ \boxed{-2\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\text{ }\\ -6\\ -23\\ -26}\)

Simplify the following:

1/((x^25)^6 (x^(-3))^48)

 

For all positive integer exponents (a^n)^m = a^(m n). Apply this to (x^(-3))^48.

Multiply exponents. (x^(-3))^48 = x^(-3×48):

1/((x^25)^6 x^(-3×48))

 

Multiply -3 and 48 together.

-3×48 = -144:

1/((x^25)^6 x^(-144))

 

For all positive integer exponents (a^n)^m = a^(m n). Apply this to (x^25)^6.

Multiply exponents. (x^25)^6 = x^(25×6):

1/(x^(25×6)/x^144)

 

Multiply 25 and 6 together.

25×6 = 150:

1/(x^150/x^144)

 

Write 1/(x^150/x^144) as a single fraction.

Multiply the numerator of 1/(x^150/x^144) by the reciprocal of the denominator. 1/(x^150/x^144) = (1 x^144)/x^150:

x^144/x^150

 

For all exponents, a^n/a^m = a^(n - m). Apply this to x^144/x^150.

Combine powers. x^144/x^150 = x^(144 - 150):

x^(144 - 150)

Evaluate 144 - 150.

144 - 150 = -6:

 

x^(-6)
