## anonymous one year ago x^3 TIMES x^2 Is it just x^5?

1. zepdrix

$$\large\rm x^a\cdot x^b=x^{a+b}$$ yes, good :)

Yes. Every time you multiply exponents you multiply the base number and just add the exponents together. Another example is 4^3*5^4=20^7

4^3*5^4=20^7 is not true in order to add the exponents, the bases must be the same. Zepdrix has the right idea
