it is making use of the rule:\[a\times a^n=a^{n+1}\]

can you see how?

Not really. Could you put the equation into that rule? I think I'l be able to understand, then.

ok, first of all how can you simplify the left hand side of your expression?

Lets see this question like this.... :) let 3^x=y..... the above equation is....... 3^x + 3^x + 3^x = 3^x *3 y+y+y=y(3) 3y=3y...... It is an identity...... :DA

a(a^n) = a^n+1 3(3^x) = 3^x+1 Aa. If I may ask, how does the rule work/make sense?
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
e.g.:\[a\times a^3=a\times(a\times a\times a)=a\times a\times a\times a=a^4\]

and 4 = 3 + 1

the general rule here is:\[a^m\times a^n=a^{m+n}\]
