    what the heck does x^3times^3times^3 mean?

    x to the third multiplied

    you want what \(x^3.x^3.x^3\) this is the first part

    you want to see if it is equivalent to what?

    use the drawing to write what you meant that is vague the way you wrote it

    do you mean is it equivalent to \(x^{3\times 3 \times 3 }\)

    yes and why

    it is not equivalent

    what is x^3?

    it is xtimesxtimesx right

    so we have \(x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x=?\)

    for the first or second equation?

    i just wrote x^3 as xtimesxtimesx the definition of exponent

    because its asking me if the two different equations are equivalent and then why or why not

    first of course we are trying to see why it is not equivalent to second

    now accordding to what i did we should get x^9 for the first (this the definition of exponent) when we have \(a^n\times a^m=a^{n+m}\)

  22. xapproachesinfinity

    that is why \(x^3\times x^3\times x^3=x^9\)

    oh ok so thats the answer for the first one ?

    now the second is different \(x^{3\times 3\times 3}=x^{27}\)

    why did you multiply the exponents on the second one but added them ump on the first?

  26. xapproachesinfinity
    • one year ago

    and since x^9 does not equal x^27 then they are not equivalent at all

  27. xapproachesinfinity

    because that is multiplication on the exponent buddy
