According to what you typed, there's something really wrong with your concept!

Wait.

EDIT: You can't just decide to move the 4 into the denominator without changing the divide sign!

EDIT AGAIN: X^2 divided by 1/x^-8 (which btw is not the same as what your original equation is) is what you gave the answer as, but your original manipulation is wrong.
