Rocky simplified an expression in three steps, as shown:
Which is the first incorrect step and why? Step 1, all the exponents are increased by 2 Step 1, all the exponents are multiplied by 2 Step 2, the exponents in the denominator are added during multiplication Step 3, the exponents of the same base are added during division
Keep in mind that anything with a negative exponent is just one over that term with a positive exponent. For example, x^-1 = 1/x
Does that help at all?
Ok, yes that helps ALOT, it's just that i have one more assignment after this one, and i am out of school, So i think i am just stressed out.
Of thinking if i will pass or not.
Well I'm here for any other questions you may have. I'm not saying I'm the best help but I will try my best
So can you help me eliminate real quick?
Yeah I'm here
I think we can rule out C
Yeah multiplying like terms with exponents just means you add their exponents together
We can eliminate A because, increasing means to add, and they are multiplying it by 2.
I think it's B
because they are doing that, in step1
Well consider what multiplying the exponents by two means. When you have any term to the 2nd power that just means you multiply it by itself. So if you look at just the numerator here, (x^-5)(y^2) times itself is basically just multiplying the exponents by two
Oh woops nvm
Stupid mistake, you are right
I misread the problem and thought there was only one mistake. Step 3 was a mistake also
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
You have been a really big help, i don't if i could have done it without you :)
Um actually second-guessing myself now >.>
You do just multiply by two
Sorry I'm super rusty, been out of school for too long
(x^-5)^2 = x^-10
It's gotta be B because none of the other answer choices are happening in that problem.
But B is correct. During step 2 x^6 * x^6 gives us x^12, and that's just (x^6)^2
Btw it could be A, since idk what "increased by 2" means
Eh I still think it's D, because he shouldn't be adding those exponents during division
You always subtract for division
increasing having the property that for any two points in the domain such that one is larger than the other, the image of the larger point is greater than or equal to the image of the smaller point; nondecreasing.
Sorry for all the confusion, I'm sure of this now
LOL just looked it up, because idk what it meant either
Because look at what he does. He adds 12 to -10 for the x term
But if he rewrote x^-10 as 1/x^10 he wouldn't have gotten the same
OH yeah, in division you subtract the exponets, rather than adding them, YOUR RIGHT D IS THE ANSWER
Sorry again ^^'
It's ok, i think i have confused myself, it's not your fault.
