a$^4$
You have $\frac{(2a^6)(4a)}{8a^3}$.Simplify the expression. Simplify the numerator: 2$a^{6}$ $\times$4a= 8a$^7$ -Multiply 2 and 4 to get 8. Add the exponents because they have the same base- $\frac{8a^7}{8a^3}$ -divide the numbers 8/8=1- $\frac{a^7}{a^3}$ -subtract the exponents since you are dividing numbers with the same value- $a^{7-3}=a^{4}$ The simplified expression is $a^{4}$
