Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hint: \[\Large {x^3} \cdot {x^3} \cdot {x^3} = {x^{3 + 3 + 3}} = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I think that you have to compute the multiplication of those powers, namely x^3 * x^3 * x^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, since we have this: \[\Large {x^{27}} = {x^{3 \times 3 \times 3}} = {\left\{ {{{\left( {{x^3}} \right)}^3}} \right\}^3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so they are equivalent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, they are different, since this quantity: \[\Large {x^3} \cdot {x^3} \cdot {x^3} = {x^{3 + 3 + 3}}\] is the multiplication of powers whereas this quantity: \[\Large {x^{3 \times 3 \times 3}} = {\left\{ {{{\left( {{x^3}} \right)}^3}} \right\}^3}\] is the power of power of power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and when x is different from 1, those quantities are different
