2 x^2 y^3
3 x^3 y^4
6 x y
i mean, id stack them so that i could keep track of them better :/

like bases add exponents; and constants just get mulitplied together

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

ok . (6xy)(2x^2y^3)= 12x^3y^4 using exponents rules.

okay so then why do i multiply that by (3x^3y^4)

So then i multiply 12x^3y^4 by (3x^3y^4)

SO THAS why we use the operator (multiplication) thats what i mean by "operator" hope that helps

okay so can you show me the steps into multiplying 12x^3y^4 by (3x^3y^4)

1>multiply 12by 3 = 36
2> x^3by x^3 = x^6
3> y^4 by y^4= y^8

so it would be 36x^8y^8?

sooo if i have \[(3x)^{3}(4x)^{2}\] would the answer be 216?

\[(3x)^3\] is not the same as
\[3x^2\] = henc \[(3x)^3\]=\[3^3 x^3= 27x^3\]
and \[3x^3=3x^3\]
