Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lets 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a(a^n) = a^n+1 3(3^x) = 3^x+1 Aa. If I may ask, how does the rule work/make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2e.g.:\[a\times a^3=a\times(a\times a\times a)=a\times a\times a\times a=a^4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the general rule here is:\[a^m\times a^n=a^{m+n}\]
