Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first: if u have (a*x^b)(c*x^d), this equal to (a*c)x^(b+d)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, consider the top part first, change x=10,a=5,b=6,c=6,d=5 u got me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well its all written in scientific notation. but if i just see it like an exponent problem i can do it like this right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. i used a,b,c,d,x as arbitrary. thats in general. u just have to subtitute them with numbers according to the questions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just to make sure, ur question is \[(5\times 10^{6})(6 \times 10^{5}) / (4 \times 10^{8})\] am i right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for upper part: u wil have 30*10. but 30=3*10 therefore, 30*10= 3*10*10= 3*10^2 then, use this: if u have (a*x^b)/(c*x^d), this equal to (a/c)x^(bd) for (3*10^2)/(4*10^8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no problem. im not simply give u the answer straight away so u can learn how to do exponent problems on your own.
