Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when we divide same bases we should `subtract` their exponents \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{mn}\] and when we `multiply` same bases we should `add` ther exponents \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n=x^{m +n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so would it be the third one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.23rd one is \[\huge\rm 3^1 \times 3^7\] ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i know but i need the answer that is eqivelent to 3^2*3^5!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i said when we multiply same bases we should add their exponents so 3^2 times 3^5= ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2here is an example \[\huge\rm 2^\color{ReD}{5} \times 2^\color{blue}{4} = 2^{\color{red}{5} +\color{blue}{4}} =2^9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so \[\huge\rm 3^\color{ReD}{2} \times 3^\color{blue}{5} = 3^{???}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes right! now look at the options which option is equal to 3^7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the third option right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2here are some examples anything to the zero power is just equal to one \[\huge\rm (x)^0= 1~~~~(anything)^0=1\] and like i said when we divide same bases we should subtract their exponents example is \[\huge\rm \frac{ 2^5 }{ 2^3 }=2^{53}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[3^1 \times 3^7=?\]would you add those exponents or subtract ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right so \[\huge\rm 3^1 \times 3^7= 3^{1+7} \] is this equal to 3^7 ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so that's not equal to 3^7 that's why 3rs one isn't correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1o it would be the first one because you subtract it and it would equal 3^7 right?
