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

5x^2 sorry
andriod09
  • andriod09
its okay. first thing is first, what do you do with the exponets?

multiply... i think

  • andriod09
do you remember pendas?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes. that applies here ?
andriod09
  • andriod09
yes \[5x^2\] what's first?
anonymous
  • anonymous
exponent
andriod09
  • andriod09
okay then, now you have what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5x
andriod09
  • andriod09
what equation would you have now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x^10 my bad
anonymous
  • anonymous
the equation is actually (5^2)^2
andriod09
  • andriod09
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk now
andriod09
  • andriod09
okay, when you split up \[5x^2\] you would get \[5x\] and \[5x\] what would you do with the two \[5x\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
divide ? i dont think my lessons covered this
andriod09
  • andriod09
no. you wouldn't divide. you remember PEMDAS? you have this equation, \[5x(5x)\] what would you do now?

as in IDK
andriod09
  • andriod09
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^25

  • anonymous
x^10 was correct. why did u say otherwise ?
andriod09
  • andriod09
no its not, the answer would be \[25x\] you wouldn't do it as the exponet
andriod09
  • andriod09
look: \[5x^2\] \[5x(5x)\] \[25x\] 5 times 5 isn't 10, its 25.
