    4*3/5=12/5

    Use the rules \[x^3 = x(x)x\] \[(x^3)^3 = (x^3)(x^3)(x^3)\]

    \[(x^3)(x^3) = x^6\]

    I'm confused because my answer choices aren't any thing I am getting, or anything like that. They have square roots

    \[(x^3)^3 = (x^3)(x^3)(x^3) = x^9\] 3*3 = 9 3 + 3 + 3 = 9

    see this (x^2)^2 will x^4 i multiplied 2 with 2 for getting answer.

    I understand that you add the exponents when multiplying exponents

    look at my example though, once you understand why it is true you will be able to solve your answer very easily

    do you know how to multiply fractions? \[\frac{3}{4}*5 = \frac{3}{4}(\frac{5}{1 }) = \frac{3*5}{4*1} = \frac{3*5}{4} = \frac{15}{4}\]

    I'm showing you examples of fraction multiplication, I'm not going to solve your problem for you, but I will teach you how to solve it

    there isn't any trick to this problem, when you have \[(x^3)^3 = x^9\] \[(x^2)^{1/2} = x^{2\frac{1}{2}} = x^1 = x\] \[(x^5)^{3} = x^{5*3} = x^{15}\]

    \[(x^{4})^{3/5}\] = \[x^{4/1} * ^{3/5}\] = multiplied the fraction, got x^12/5 thenhad to put it ion radical form: \[\sqrt[5]{x}^{12}\]

    I know I'm on the right track. But I don't know what else to do, do I simplify the x^12?
