## clarkexo 2 years ago solve: a^2 · a^3 · a^-4

1. wio

Nothing to solve... maybe they mean simplify? So when you multiply a variable with different exponents, what do you do the exponents... You add them right? For example: $\large x^5\cdot x^6 = x^{5+6} = x^{11}$

2. clarkexo

I cant see the example sorry, but would the answer be a^-1?

3. clarkexo

i mean a^1

4. wio

Yeah, but remember that $$a^1$$ is just $$a$$.

(a^2+3) (a^-4) a^5 . a^-4 a^5-4 = a^1
