Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is kinda tricky I think its A or B im not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well we need the exponent laws for \[\frac{a^m}{a^n} \rightarrow a^{mn}\] take it one at a time. for example if we have a = y, m = 5 and n = 3, we have \[\frac{y^5}{y^3} \rightarrow y^{53}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes so you have \[y^2 \]. Now do the same thing for the z exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes so your answer is \[y^2z^6\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we have positive exponents, so there's no denominator... if you have a negative exponent like \[a^{n} \rightarrow \frac{1}{a^n}\] then we need to rewrite it. Negative exponents are usually not allowed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats how the next one looks hold up Im going to post it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok.. A negative exponent just means that the base is on the wrong side of the fraction line, so you need to flip the base to the other side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I just use the elevator rule.. whenever the negative exponent is on the numerator it goes down to the denominator... when there is a negative exponent on the denominator it goes up to the numerator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my teacher said there shouldnt be any negative exponent in my final answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{a^m}{a^n} \rightarrow a^{mn}\] only this time we have a y = x, m = 5, and n = 9 so we have \[\frac{x^{5}}{x^9} \rightarrow x^{59}\] so what is 59 ?

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes but due to the fact that negative exponents aren't allowed we need to rewrite is as \[\frac{1}{x^{14}}\] We define a number with a negative exponent \[a^{n} = \frac{1}{a^n}\] It is the reciprocal of that number with a positive exponent The \[a^{n}\] is the reciprocal of \[a^n \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{a^m}{a^n} \rightarrow a^{mn} \] (exponent law) a = b, m =2 n = 6. what's 26 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2weeeeee distributing exponents...

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's either write the whole fraction 7 times and add the exponents one by one or just distribute the exponent on x and y which is must faster

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's like we have x or x to the first power... \[(x^1)^7 \rightarrow (x^{(1)(7)})\] yes it is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay 1 more after this one :)

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no.. because you are distributing the 5 distribution is multiplication . the 3 and the z portion is right for B but not x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its A because of 2 times 5?

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh yeah... sorry I was trying to prove something to another user... it is A because you are distributing the exponent 5 all over the entire problem so you should have 3^5 x^(2)(5)/z^5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'll give a hint: all of them switch places thanks to the distribution of the negative. whatever is on the numerator goes to the denominator and whatever is on the denominator goes on the numerator.

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no... the 4 wasn't distributed on the 3 and when you have a problem like this you need to distribute everything.. all the numbers and variables have that distribution .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because of the 4 which is already a negative exponent 3^(4)x^(4) goes down and y^(4) goes up
