Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not which means I must be doing something wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh nvm then show your work please don't even touch the base just move around the exponents

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0exponent rule you can't have the negative exponent \[x^{m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\] flip the fraction to make it positive exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{ x^{m} }{ 1 }=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are we talking about an imaginary base under the entire problem ? sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{ 2^6 \times 2^{3} }{ \frac{ 2^{10} }{ 2^{8}} }\] this is your question right where `2` is the base

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{\color{reD}{ 2^6 \times 2^{3}} }{ \frac{ 2^{10} }{ 2^{8}} }\] solve the red part first when you `multiply` same bases you should `add` their exponents

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay what about the division ? my results now come back to 1^1

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright \[\rm \color{Red}{2^6 \times 2^{3} }\div 2^{10} \div 2^{8}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same thing. :=) solve the red part first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay than divide from left to right subtracting the exponents right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so my new answer is 4^{27}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just play with the exponents don't even touch the base

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiply the same u would add their exponents alright \[\rm \color{Red}{2^{6+(3)} }\div 2^{10} \div 2^{8}\] like this

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So leave the base and add and subtract the exponents? new answer\[2^{36}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correction sorry wrong numbers

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no.. i said when you `multiply` the same bases then u should add \[\huge\rm \color{Red}{2^6 \color{blue}{\times }2^{3} }\div 2^{10} \div 2^{8}\] here are multiplying 2^6 times 2^{3 that's why we should add the base

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \color{black}{2^{6+(3)} }\color{red}{\div} 2^{10} \color{red}{\div }2^{8}\] different rule when you divide same bases \[\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{mn}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so my results should be 2^15

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay I first did 6+3= 3 than I did 10 8= 18 318=15?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks for showing your work much appreciated ! \[\huge\rm \frac{ \color{ReD}{\frac{ 2^3 }{ 2^{10}}} }{ 2^{8} }\] first solve the red part we should move the 10 to the top first and then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{ 2^{3+(10)} }{ 2^{8}}\] try to solve now!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02^1? final answer, I did 3+10= 7 than 7  8= 1 2^1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how did we went from the original problem to this?

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we used two exponents rule! \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{mn}\] divide same base \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n = x^{m \times n}\] when you multiply same bsses

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0holly cow for some reason I feel lost a bit. questions can you give a practice problem to solve for you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure sure \[\huge\rm \frac{\frac{ 3^6 \times 3^7 }{ 3^4} }{ 3^{5} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I want to make one thing clear: you are of course allowed to have negative exponents it is just that your teacher wants to make sure you can go back and fourth.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so why we can't leave the negative exponent when it says `simplify`
