(-4m^3)(2m+m^2)

I have to use the property of exponents to rewrite the expression.

I'm just asking if -3^6 is right.

(we don't have to solve it--just simplify it)

Thank you!

multiply the (-4m^3) by (2m+m^2)

= -8m^4 - 4m^5

that's all

I can't even see what you did wrong to get -3^6

what happened to your m's ?

If i have two base variables with exponents for example:

4x(3x)

After getting x^2-would i have just ONE variable base?

i.e. 4(3x^2)

or place the exponent on BOTH variable bases like this:

4x^2(3x^2)?

Thanks!
