    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.

    No idea how you got that. You add the EXPONENTS, not the variables.

    Example: \[\LARGE T^{4}T^{7} = T^{4+7} = T^{11}\]
