Easton simplified the following expression: (x2y6z5)(x4y5z3) If he writes his answer in the form of xaybzc, what is the value of b, the exponent on y?
just add the exponents of y you already have remember this \[ a^na^m=a^{n+m} \]
\[\Large (x^{2}y^{6}z^{5})(x^{4}y^{5}z^{3}) = (x^{2}x^{4})(y^{6}y^{5})(z^{5}z^{3})\] Use the wquation @helder_edwin posted.
\[a^m a^n=a^{m+n}\] Figure it out.
.... x^2y^5z^3(yz^2+x^2) ?
No idea how you got that. You add the EXPONENTS, not the variables.
Example: \[\LARGE T^{4}T^{7} = T^{4+7} = T^{11}\]
so the answer is?......
