how ?

5 years ago
jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

(y^2)^3 = y^6 because you multiply exponents so (6x^2y)^2*(y^2)^3 turns into 36x^4y^2*y^6 then you add the exponents for the y terms to get 2+6 = 8

5 years ago
jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

because y is the same as y^1

jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

then you multiply exponents

afterwards 36x^4y^2*y^6 turns into 36x^4y^8

do you see how I got this?

kinda.. how did u simplify(6x^2y)^2

5 years ago
jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

here's another way to see it

5 years ago
jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

(6x^2y)^2 (6x^2y)*(6x^2y) (6*6)*(x^2*x^2)*(y*y) 36x^4y^2

5 years ago
jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

So (6x^2y)^2 simplifies to 36x^4y^2
