do you mean \[5x(2)\] or \[5x^2\]?

its okay. first thing is first, what do you do with the exponets?

multiply... i think

do you remember pendas?

mikaa_toxica13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes. that applies here ?

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes \[5x^2\] what's first?

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay then, now you have what?

what equation would you have now?
 one year ago

mikaa_toxica13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the equation is actually (5^2)^2

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no you wouldn't. if you have \[5x^2\] and you spit it, you wouldn't have \[x^10\] you would get \[5x^1\] and \[5x^1\] now what would you do with them?
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay, when you split up \[5x^2\] you would get \[5x\] and \[5x\] what would you do with the two \[5x\]

divide ? i dont think my lessons covered this
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no. you wouldn't divide. you remember PEMDAS? you have this equation, \[5x(5x)\] what would you do now?

okay, first when you see something like oh, lets say: 5(2) it means to multiply. so if you have \[5x(5x)\] you would multiply them. and thus you would get:

x^10 was correct. why did u say otherwise ?
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no its not, the answer would be \[25x\] you wouldn't do it as the exponet
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
look: \[5x^2\] \[5x(5x)\] \[25x\] 5 times 5 isn't 10, its 25.
