simplify:
(2x^2y)(5x^5y^6)
(5y)^3

Reiny,
I noticed this question before, did not answer it because I thought it was ambigious.
Are there two different problems here or is it one continuous multiplication.
I will assume you have
(2x^2y)(5x^5y^6) which is
= 10x^3y^7
or
= 10y^7/x^3
(5y)^3 = 125y^3
not much was gained in "simplification" here.

mike,
yes they were two different problems and yes i know they're stupid questions in my math book.
