do you mean something like this: [2(a^10)(b^2)][3(a^2)(b^2)]

if so, then

for constants, we just multiply them normally,, for the variables, recall some laws of exponent,, multiplying terms of same base is also equal to base raised to sum of its exponents,, for example

5^2 * 5^5 = 5^(2+5) = 5^7

x^3 * x^(-4) = x^(3-4) = x^(-1)

thus

for constants: 2*3 = 6

for base a: a^10 * a^2 = a^12

for base b: b^2 * b^2 = b^4

multiplying all of them, we have

6a^12*b^4

hope this helps~ :)
