Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is that supposed to be: \[(16x)^{3}*(18x)^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so that would become: \[(16)^{3}*x^{3} *(18)^{2}*x^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok (16)^3 would become 4096, (18)^2 would become 324, the xs would combine to make x^5, and thats where im kinda stuck :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so then you multiple like terms  that is, 4096*324, which I believe is 1327104, and then you multiply that by the x^5: 1327104x^5
