16

#### Work Step by Step

We first consider things raised to a power according to order of operations. 6 raised to the fourth power is 1296, and 3 squared is 9. This gives us: $\frac{1296/9}{9}$. We then consider the numerator (top of the fraction) to get: 144/9. We divide to find that the answer is 16.
