    Parenthesis is honestly another method of multiplying. Such as (4)(2) = 4*2. Through that logic it can be applied to variables.

    so the answer is \[x ^{4}\]

    The most basic way i can rewrite your problem would be (-1)*(x^3)*(-1)*(x)

    When multiplying by the same base you can add it to the exponent. 2*2*2*2 = 2^4 the same could be applied to your problem. And I'm sure the answer is x^4

    I don't know where u get the 2 or the 4 because there are no numbers in this problem. just x's.

    I'm using the numbers as an example. x^3 = x*x*x

    Your problem is basically (-1)*(-1)*x*x*x*x = x^4
