    When you multiply powers with the same base, add the exponents.

    Remember that 6 alone is really 6^1

    for example \(2^3\times 2^2=2\times 2\times 2\times 2\times 2\times 2=2^5\)

    the base does not change, just add up the exponents, keep the base

    \(\large 6 \cdot 6^{t - 2} \cdot 6^t=\) \(\large =6^1 \cdot 6^{t - 2} \cdot 6^t\) Now add the exponents, 1 + t - 2 + t
