Work Step by Step

We are given the expression $(\frac{6p^{6}}{p^{12}})^{2}$. First, we can use the power rule to simplify. $(\frac{6p^{6}}{p^{12}})^{2}=\frac{(6p^{6})^{2}}{(p^{12})^{2}}=\frac{6^{2}p^{6\times2}}{p^{12\times2}}=\frac{36p^{12}}{p^{24}}$ Next, we can use the quotient rule. $36\times(p^{12-24})=36p^{-12}=\frac{36}{p^{12}}$
