Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large (2v)^2 = 2^2 \times v^2 = 4v^2\] \[\large 4v^2 \times 2v^2 = 8v^2 \] or does it equal to\[\large 8v^4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4ohh i see well when we multiply same bases we should `ADD` their exponents

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh okay so it is \[8v^4 \] right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4remember it's not `combine like terms` \[2x+3x=(2+3)x\] when we add/subtract like terms variable stay the same but when we multiply them we should add their exponents

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4when you `ADD or subtract ` like terms u just have to deal with the coefficients like \[2x+3x=(2+3)x\] but when we multiply same bases we should `add` their exponents and multiply the coefficient\[\huge\rm \color{Red}{1}x^m · \color{blue}{1}x^n=(\color{red}{1} ·\color{blue}{1})x^{m+n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4\[\huge \frac{ 2x^2y^4 \times 4x^2y^4 \times 3x }{ 3x^{3}y^2 }\] can be written as \[\frac{ (2·4·3)(x^2·x^2·x)(y^4·y^4) }{3x^{3}y^2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4(2 times 3 times 4) isn't equal to 16 :=) x^8 and y^6 is correct
