Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rocky simplified an expression in three steps, as shown:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Keep in mind that anything with a negative exponent is just one over that term with a positive exponent. For example, x^1 = 1/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So can you help me eliminate real quick?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think we can rule out C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah multiplying like terms with exponents just means you add their exponents together

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can eliminate A because, increasing means to add, and they are multiplying it by 2.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because they are doing that, in step1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I misread the problem and thought there was only one mistake. Step 3 was a mistake also

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have been a really big help, i don't if i could have done it without you :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Um actually secondguessing myself now >.>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You do just multiply by two

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's gotta be B because none of the other answer choices are happening in that problem.

nuttyliaczar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But B is correct. During step 2 x^6 * x^6 gives us x^12, and that's just (x^6)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Btw it could be A, since idk what "increased by 2" means

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Eh I still think it's D, because he shouldn't be adding those exponents during division

nuttyliaczar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You always subtract for division

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0increasing 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry for all the confusion, I'm sure of this now

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0LOL just looked it up, because idk what it meant either

nuttyliaczar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because look at what he does. He adds 12 to 10 for the x term

nuttyliaczar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But if he rewrote x^10 as 1/x^10 he wouldn't have gotten the same

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OH yeah, in division you subtract the exponets, rather than adding them, YOUR RIGHT D IS THE ANSWER

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's ok, i think i have confused myself, it's not your fault.
