Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right \ remember the exponent rule \[\huge\rm (x^m)^n=x^{m \times n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0using the rule of power of power, we can rewrite your equation like this: \[\Large {\left( {{8^9}} \right)^p} = {8^{9p}} = {8^{18}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no when would you add the exponents ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when you multiply same bases you should `add` their exponents \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n=x^{m + n}\] when you divide same bases yo should `subtract` their exponents \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{mn}\] \[\huge\rm (x^m)^n=x^{m \times n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have to solve this equation: \[\Large 9p = 18\]
