like bases add exponents; and constants just get mulitplied together

well can you walk me through the steps?

i would start by multiplying (6xy) by 2x^2y^3) get the answer and the multiplying the answer by (3x^3y^4)
 2 years ago

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
how do you multiply the first part?
 2 years ago

hal_stirrup Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
ok . (6xy)(2x^2y^3)= 12x^3y^4 using exponents rules.

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so then why do i multiply that by (3x^3y^4)
 2 years ago

hal_stirrup Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
that what the operator dose.

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
rightt....

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So then i multiply 12x^3y^4 by (3x^3y^4)
 2 years ago

hal_stirrup Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
SO THAS why we use the operator (multiplication) thats what i mean by "operator" hope that helps
 2 years ago

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so can you show me the steps into multiplying 12x^3y^4 by (3x^3y^4)
 2 years ago

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so what do i do first?
 2 years ago

hal_stirrup Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
1>multiply 12by 3 = 36 2> x^3by x^3 = x^6 3> y^4 by y^4= y^8
 2 years ago

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so it would be 36x^8y^8?

i would appreciate a "BEST REPONSE " if you think so?? :)

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sooo if i have \[(3x)^{3}(4x)^{2}\] would the answer be 216?
 2 years ago

hal_stirrup Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
no (3x)3(4x)2 thats not the same. be careful mate.. :)
 2 years ago

maherman97 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so what would it be? and what did i do wrong?
 2 years ago

hal_stirrup Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[(3x)^3\] is not the same as \[3x^2\] = henc \[(3x)^3\]=\[3^3 x^3= 27x^3\] and \[3x^3=3x^3\]
