## Tee_bby 3 years ago How would you write 6 × 6 × 6 × 6 as an exponential expression?

1. amistre64

whats the definition of an exponential expression?

2. Mertsj

How many times is 6 used as a factor?

3. Tee_bby

4

4. Mertsj

What do you suppose the exponent should be?

it would be|dw:1334609124996:dw|

6. Tee_bby

A. 6 × 4 B. 6 > 4 C. 6^4

because the 6 is used 4 times so that would make the exponent 4 :)

the last one ;) good luck hun!

Well good for school. He/she knows how to do it. Perhaps you could submit all you homework questions to him/her and then you wouldn't have to do anything. (of course you wouldn't learn anything either.)

I taught it to him/her so stop being a jerk the kid/young adult just needed some help so I explained and showed the answer, sometimes people don't get it right away. my teacher always tells me the answer then explains when I ask for help, so that I don't get lost along the way.

11. amistre64

its actually better for these basic things to let the asker come to the answer thru guidance. Which is what Mertsj was trying to accomplish

well I guess since I am a kid and I am coming from a kids perspective just trying to help the way me and all of my friends minds work makes me retar ded but whatever... I guess getting "Best Answer" doesn't mean anything either.

13. amistre64

Best Answer doesnt mean anything really :) I understand the "kid" point of view. But try to see it from us "old people" point of view as well.

Oh and by the way he knew how to do it, he explained the answer to me just now, he just got confused :P

I do . and the old people veiw, AKA the way my mom trys to teach me doesn't work

16. Tee_bby

im not stupid just struggled a little bit so dang cut me a break geesh

17. amistre64

I can tell your young, you like to try to prove your position. :) But I am glad you offered some reasoning afterwards

Oh hun no one is calling you stupid! They are basically telling me I should just talk you through it with hints instead of giving the answer and then explaining.

19. Mertsj

Well, one thing I would say, is that if someone is explaining to an asker, it is probably just as well not to butt in.

20. Tee_bby

just leave the topic alone your rude man

21. Mertsj

I guess my thought would be that the one who interrupts is the rude one.
