# Out of the four options, only one is correct. Write the correct answer.For a non-zero rational number p, p13 ÷ p8 is equal toA. p5B. p21C. p–5D. p–19

By laws of exponent,

xm ÷ xn = xm-n

In this question,

m = 13

n = 8

xm ÷ xn = xm-n

p13 ÷ p8 = p13-8

p13 ÷ p8 = p5

Hence, for a non-zero rational number p, p13 ÷ p8 is equal to p5.
