Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Could you show me how to do it in a step by step process so I understand how to do it on my own?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21. Use distributive property 6^2 (x^2)^2 (0.5x)^4 2. Simplify 6^2 to 36 36(x^2)^2(0.5x)^4 3. Simplify (x^2)^2 to x^4 36x^4 (0.5x)^4 4. Use the Negative Power Rule 36 * 1/x^4 (0.5x)^4 5. USe Distributive Property 36 * 1/x^4 * 0.5^4 x^4 6.Simplify 0.5^4 to 0.0625 36 * 1/x^4 * 0.0625 x^4 7. Simplify again 2.25x^4/x^4 8. Cancel x^4 2.25 Answer: 2.25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2When you x^4 on top and on the bottom of a fraction you cancel them out. I have done algebra for the past two years I know this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the exponents multiply and a negative times a negative is posative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2And according to the Negative Power Rule, if you have a number to the negative power, you need to move it to the bottom of a equation to make it positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You have to multiply the exponet 2 and 2 which is a negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are not multiplying a fration

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I know that. That is not what I said.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you moved it to the bottom you would have 6/x^4 *(0.5x)^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Exponents 2 and 2 make 4 which has to become the denominator of the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Exactly! Then the exponent 4 would have to be distributed to both the x and the 0/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2which would make 36 * 0.0625^4/x^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That simplifies to 2.25x^4/x^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Cancel out the x^4 and you have 2.25. Do you get what I am saying?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I wouldn't think so, but I could be wrong. I do understand what you are saying, but I do not agree with it. But you could be right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I could be wrong as well. I guess we will just have to see which is correct once the questioner (is that how you would say it? lol) gets back.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just typed this into a graphing calculator and it came back as 1 E 4 Since I don't have a value for x I am assuming it returned a one and a 4. That would make you correct, Good Job. I learned something :)
