Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no 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?

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, 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:

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

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