Whenever you see a problem like this, start by expressing everything in the same base:

Thus,
8^2*3^2*2^13 = (2^3)^2*3^2*2^13 = 2^6*2^13*3^2 = 2^19*3^2
and
(96)^2 = 2^5*3

Then simplify:
(2^19*3^2) / (2^5*3) = 2^14*3

Hope this helps.

Hi asdert

I think we have 96 ^2 not 96 ..

so we will get (2^5 * 3^1) ^ 2 => 2^10*3^2

so , 2^19*3^2 / 2^10*3^2 = 2 ^9

Thanks
