Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea I got that part, I am not sure where to put the exponent. The answer I got was (x1)(3+5)^2. I am just not sure if that is where the exponent goes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i didn't, that is one of the common terms. when you divide it out that leaves x^2 and 5. Since they are both positive they are grouped together positively.
