    \[(\frac{b}{7})^2 = \frac{b^2}{7^2} = \frac{b^2}{49}\]

    Pull out the coefficients and use \[x^ax^b=x^{a+b}\]

    I don't know this at all I am a parent trying to give my 2 children some math for the summer so I am asking for the help because I have not done algebra in 25 years

    Okay well then move those out so you get \[ 2*3x^6x^{1/2} \] and use the above formula.

    the coefficients are the numbers in front of the variable whenever you are multiplying variables with powers you always must add the powers together

    what will the final answer be?

    6x^3

    \[6x ^{3}\]

    • 10 months ago
  19. JBrandonS

    You need to add the powers, not multiply. so \[6x^{6+1/2}\]

    the answer would be\[6x^\frac{ 13 }{ 2 }\]

    I have given you the answer, there is only one thing you need to do... Do you know how to add fractions with whole numbers?

    that is 6x^13/2

    • 10 months ago
  25. Tabbiejack

    so its \[5x \frac{ 13 }{2 }\]

    all you need to do is add the powers which is 6+.5 and you get 6.5 which is 13/2 in fraction form so final answer would be 6x^13/2

    ok so this expression can be re-written as \[\frac{ x^9 }{ d^7 }/\frac{ x^14 }{ d^10 }\] which can be written as \[\frac{ x^9 }{ d^7 }*\frac{ d^10 }{ x^14 }\] the equation software on here is complexed but that is d^10 and x^-14

    now what we can do is simplify the expression easier this way and we do this by subtracting the powers of the variable x and subtract the powers of the variable d not finished yet

    \[\frac{ x^9 }{ x^14 }=\frac{ 1 }{ x^5 }\] andthe other one whic you get \[\frac{ d^10 }{ d^7 }=d^3\] combine and you get \[\frac{ d^3 }{ c^5 }\] sorry the x should have been a C

    Write the recursive formula for the geometric sequence. a1 = -2 a2 = 8 a3 = -32 A. an = -4 + an-1 B. an = -2 + an-1 C. an = -2 • an-1 D. an = -4 • an-1
