Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If we apply the rules of multiplication and division of power with same basis, we get: \[\Large {\left( {\frac{3}{2}{x^{  12 + 8  5}}{y^{10  4  \left( {  7} \right)}}} \right)^{  3}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, focus on the exponents. then we apply one of the laws of exponents, which generally has the form: \(\huge (\frac{p^n}{q^m})^r = \frac{p^{n+r}}{q^{n+r}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you multiply same bases then you should add their expnents you need to know exponent rules first one is \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n } = x^{mn}\] if there are same bases at the numerator and at the denominator move exponent frm bottom to top or top to bottom(remember there shouldn't be any negative exponent) 2nd rule \[\huge\rm (\frac{ x^m }{ y^n })^r = \frac{ x^{m \times r} }{ y^{n \times r}}\] 3rd one is \[\huge\rm { x^{m} }={ \frac{ 1 }{ x^m } }\]
