(8(x^3y^4)2)-2

**drwls**, Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 11:06pmAre the last 2's exponents? That would mean you want to know

[8(x^3y^4)^2]^-2

The +2 and -2 operations on (x^3y^4) would leave it unchanged, and leave you with

(1/64)(x^3y^4)

**james b**, Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 11:38pmThe problem to solve is:

(8(x^3y^4)2)-2

Multiply 8 and

8*(x^3*y^4)2 evaluates to 64

Abort (8*(x^3*y^4)2)-2 evaluates to 64-64

The final answer is 64-64
