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!

**drwls**, Monday, March 2, 2009 at 11:05pmYour question is rather unclear.

If you square (4x)(3x),the result is 4^2 * 3^2 x^2 = 144 x^2.

If you square just the x, the result is 12 x^2.

**Katy**, Monday, March 2, 2009 at 11:12pmI guess i can try to clear it up. Sorry.

So I'm adding the exponents of 1 for EACH variable/base x. That'd make it x^2.

Okay, so if i have to rewrite the equation with just one exponent, then would i put the x^2 after JUST ONE of the coefficents? Like this:

4x^2(3) or KEEP IT attacthed to BOTH coefficents like this: 4x^2(3^2)

I'm sorry if that still makes no sense.
