Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. Do you understand the "power rules" such as 7^2 = 49?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0usually it makes it easier to break down the numbers into its prime factors for example, 24 = \[2^3 * 3\] then you divide out whatever is on the numerator and denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i understand power rules . but do you cross mutiply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. You horizontally multiply. Cross multiplication is for terms on either side of the = sign.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for future reference, kitkat, what you wanted to say is probably cross "division" you meant to cancel the terms on the top and the ones on the bottom right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What Yuki was implying... Examine 7^2 and 14^6. How can the 14^6 eliminate 7^2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.014^6 can be rewritten as 7*2(14^5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That will cancel out 7^2 and make it just 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(24/7^2) * 14^6/40 = (24/7) / 2(14^5)/40 We've taken a step to reduce the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry, i meant (24/7) * 2(14^5)/40

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.024/7 can be rewritten as 6*4/7 and 2(14^5)/40 can be rewritten as 2(14^5)/(4*10) The 4's will cancel and you'll have 6/7 * 2(14^5)/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okayy i think i get it so the answer should be 6\[^{4}\]/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the answer will be 92198.4 6 * 2(14^5) = 6453888 7*10=70 3226944/0 6453888/70 = 92198.4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0vry odd. I just put it in my TI 89 calc and got my same answer. Bad answer sheet? I'm 99.9% sure I did the math correctly.
