Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0numerator (x^1)^18=x^18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now what is this numerator go to?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0denominator  (6y^1/3)^18 =(6^18)*(y^6)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put them together (x^18)/(6^18)(y^6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay break this down a bit. for the numerator where did you get the x^1?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wasn't that in the question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x^(1/6) * y^(1/3))^18 x^3 y^6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just multiplied the exponents

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0theres no multiplication sign between x and y

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when there is nothing, it is assumed that they are being multiplied

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay. so for the exponents do you just make the 3 qnd 6 equal to 18?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you have one exponent on another like this \[(a^x)^y\] You would multiply the exponents x*y

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can be rewritten as a^(x*y)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in your case (x^(1/6) * y^(1/3))^18

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nvm i got it x^3 and y^6 right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is that as simpilified as im going to get?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alrighty thank you for helping me :0]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0btw do you know that negative exponent could be written as positive if you put in denominator

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i didn't but that might be important right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes say you have something like x^a you can rewrite it as 1/x^a

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay yeah i saw that in a video i was recently watching okay thanks a lot!! that will help towards my test. i really really apperciate everything. :0]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also remember this x^a * y^b=z^(a+b) x^a/y^b= z^(ab)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it is always the case Trying solving this x^2 * y^4

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I forgot to say this but x and y must be same

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry my computer is running slow. in the cases you just showed me is that what your talking about?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02^3 * 2^2 = 8 * 4= 32 or 2^(3+2) = 2^5= 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Will you test have log

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay for a the problem im working on now (x^1/3 /y^2/3)^9 do i divide first?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0log? like on the calculator?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since you do not know if x and y are same don't devide anything

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just do what we did on last problem

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i did i got x^3/y^6 but my book says the answer os x^3y^6

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got 6 and i did the same for 1/3 and got 3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Both you and the book are right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/a^x = a^x 1/a^x = a^x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm? but i have the x^3 on top how can you fit a 1 by itself?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is what you got x^3/y^6 using 1/a^x = a^x 1/a^x = a^x x^3 * 1/y^6 x^3 * y^6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay that makes more sense.
