OpenStudy (agreene):

\[5^{-8}\times 5^4= \frac{5^4}{5^{-8}}=\frac{1}{5^4}=\frac{1}{625}=0.0016\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

5^-8 x 5^4 using the law a^m x a^n = a^m+n 5^(-8)+4 = 5^-4 using the law a^-m = 1/a^m 1 1 5^-4 = ----- = ----- 5^4 625

OpenStudy (agreene):

in that first fraction there shouldnt be a -8, just an 8.
