There are (3^2)^4 ⋅ 3^0 bacteria in a petri dish. What is the total number of bacteria in the dish?

anything to the 0 power is just equal to 1 \[(2)^0 = 1\] \[(x)^0 =1\] another exponent rule \[\huge\rm (x^m)^n = x^{m \times n}\]

3^2 = 9 = 3 * 3 9^4 = 9*9*9*9 = 6561
Curry
  • Curry
well, if the base number is 3, then it'd just be 3^(2*4) = 3^8

\[\huge\rm (x^m)^n = x^{m \times n}\] ^^^ multiply outside exponent by inside exponent of the # :-) remember :?? :3 o^_^o btw welcome to openstudy!

That would give me (3^8) ⋅ 3^0 @Nnesha right?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yep right and what's 3^0 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
perfect!
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Nnesha ahh then what would the answer be? im a little confused. is 3^8 right?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
did you get 3^8 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
OH
anonymous
  • anonymous
i see
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, then 3^8 is right. because (3^8) x 1 = 3^8
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yep right
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahh thanks
