Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'll do a similar example (just with different numbers) \[\Large \left(2w^{5}x^{8}\right)^{4}\] \[\Large \left(2\right)^{4}\left(w^{5}\right)^{4}\left(x^{8}\right)^{4}\] \[\Large \left((2)^{1}\right)^{4}\left(w^{5}\right)^{4}\left(x^{8}\right)^{4}\] \[\Large (2)^{1*4}w^{5*4}x^{8*4}\] \[\Large (2)^{4}w^{20}x^{32}\] \[\Large (2)^{4}w^{20}\frac{1}{x^{32}}\] \[\Large 16w^{20}\frac{1}{x^{32}}\] \[\Large \frac{16w^{20}}{x^{32}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would you work it out to get to the next step though? I understand that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You would apply the outermost exponent to each term inside

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In other words, you would cube each piece.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So basically would it be, (3w^3/x^6) times (3w^3/x^6) times (3w^3/x^6) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes pretty much

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So that explains why, for instance, in the denominator you will have x^6*x^6*x^6 = x^(6+6+6) = x^(18)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A shortcut is to use this rule \[\Large (x^m)^n = x^{m*n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would I get for my answer to that is 27w^9/x^18 ?
