Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So here's the thing, I don't why we have to combine them... Is it because 2x^4 has two terms: 2 and x^4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22 is a constant, lets throw that out of the process of multiplying 'x's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So just to clarify, if we have like 45x^5 then i will just have to take out the 45 and work with the x being the common base with another power right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22/x^8 also "looks" nice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1My answer is \[\huge \frac{ 2 }{ x^8 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The reason for why I have to put the x^8 to the denominator is because of the exponent of 8 right? The negative exponent tells the base to get to its reciprocal and then the exponent becomes positive?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2correcto! \(\Large a^{b} = \dfrac{1}{a^b}\)
