    if you multiply two numbers (of the same "base") you *add* their exponents. the question asks about *multiplying exponents* you multiply exponents using this rule \[ \left(a^b\right)^c = a^{bc} \]

    in your answer choices, you should use ^ to show exponents for example use 2^3 to show \(2^3\) as posted, I can't tell what is or is not an exponent. but maybe you can figure out the answer using the rule posted up above.
