36 / 16 = 9 / 4

(6x^2)^2 (0.5x)^4
= (6^2x^4)((0.5)^4(x^4)
= (6^2)(0.5)^4(x^4)(x^4)
= (36)(1/16)x^0
= 36/16
= 9/4
= 2.25

The answer is 9/4 which is 2.25.
But note that this only works if x is not zero, since zero can’t have a negative exponent.

(6/x²)² (x/2)⁴ = (36/x⁴) * (x⁴ / 16) = (36/16) = 9/4
