    Remember that exponents just mean to multiply a number by itself that many times. So you have 9 a's multiplying together and then 18 a's multiplying together. How many a's have you multiplied?

    \[a^n*a^m=a^{n+m}\]

    for example, \[a^3*a^4 = (a*a*a)*(a*a*a*a) = a*a*a*a*a*a*a = a^7 = a^{3+4}\]
