Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the first one, you use the rule \[\Large x^a*x^b = x^{a+b}\]

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and you can extend out the rule the rule basically says "if the bases are the same, then you add the exponents" dw:1434412649041:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or you can replace x with some small number, say x = 2 then compute x^3*x^3*x^3 and x^(3*3*3) to see if they are equal or not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah first one is x^9 the second is x^27

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it is \[\Large 10\sqrt{x^5*x^4*x^3}\] ???

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does \[\Large x^5*x^4*x^3\] simplify to?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh wait I have the wrong digit

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it should be \[\Large 10\sqrt{x^5*x^4*x^2}\]

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok I see the answer now

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does x^1/3 times x^1/3 times x^1/3 simplify to?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 3/3 turns into 1/1 or just 1 x^1 = x

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in the end, x^1/3 times x^1/3 times x^1/3 turns into just x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does choice B say this \[\Large \frac{1}{x^{1}}\] ??

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, \[\Large \frac{1}{x^{1}} = \frac{1}{1/x} = \frac{x}{1} = x\]
