Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hint: First use this formula \(\sf(a^b)^c = a^{b\times c}\) Then use this one \(\sf\Large\frac{a^b}{a^c}=a^{bc}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also these formulas: \(\sf a^b\times a^c = a^{b+c}\) \(\sf\Large {a^{b}}=\frac{1}{a^b}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2can you simplify \[ x ^{5}x ^{4} \]? (add the exponents)

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes now we have up top \[ (x^{1})^4 \] now use the rule multiply exponents to simplify that

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now let's do the bottom. first \[ (x ^{4}x ^{6}) \]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we have \[ \frac{x^{4}}{x^{10} }\]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can do that two ways: "flip" x^4 and put it in the bottom but with x^4 then combine x^4*x^10 (in the bottom) or do 4  10 (subtract the exponents because we divide)

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes 1/x^14 this can also be written x^(14)
