petitejiji, your solution is confusing
& wrong too!
is that 100, lol.
pretty sure (3x^5/6) * (8x^2/3) is really \[\large (3x^{\frac{5}{6}})(8x^{\frac{2}{3}})\] can we get a confirmation?
Yes to jim_thompson5910, sorry for any confusion.
I wish people would use parentheses properly
hero: sorry, I didn't realize it was wrong until I looked at it again.
multiply the coefficients to get 3*8 = 24, this is the final coefficient now add the exponents: 5/6+2/3 = 5/6+4/6 = 9/6 = 3/2, this is the final exponent So \[\large (3x^{\frac{5}{6}})(8x^{\frac{2}{3}})=24x^{\frac{3}{2}}\]
a123, if it's wrong, speak up. Don't let confusion linger for too long.
jim: is that the same thing as \[(\sqrt{24x})^{3}\]
no because the exponent is only over the x and not the 24; however, you can rewrite it as \[\large 24\sqrt{x^3}\]
and simplify to get \[\large 24x\sqrt{x}\]
