Pretty Pleaseeeeee HELP ME!!!!!!! Use the product rule to simplify the expression: (-7x^4p^5)(4y^4x^2)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

do you know the product rule?

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

I do not remember

OpenStudy (anonymous):

start by looking that up

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

Can you just tell me what it is,and then I could probabbly do it from there

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

There are a hundred defenitions and I do not know which one

OpenStudy (anonymous):

The product rule states that when multiplying 2 powers that have the same base, you can add the exponents.

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

ummm...ok..thanks lol

OpenStudy (anonymous):

(-7)(4)(x^4+2)(p^5)(y^4)

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

wait what did you do??

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Rearranged the question to group common bases

OpenStudy (anonymous):

it should end up looking like -28x^6p^5y^4

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

What are commmon bases?? Am so sorry but for some reason this is not clicking

OpenStudy (anonymous):

(-7x^4p^5)(4y^4x^2) okay so from here you take each term out and put them into groups.. i.e (-7)(4)(x^4+2)(p^5)(y^4)

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

Yea...so why did you group x^4 and 2 together ???

OpenStudy (anonymous):

because there was (x^4) and (x^2)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

smh

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

Ahh okay. Thank you so much for your explanations. You were very helpful!

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

smh? @ your name??? Yea, I thought so. @Pu55yDestr0yer

Try Mathway.com @mary.rojas its for stupid fks like you

OpenStudy (mary.rojas):

Oh, thank you very much for the advice. Have a wonderful day, stranger ;)
