Product of Terms [ 9th Grade]

Whats the product of terms for
(4a^2c^4)(3b^4c) ?
^ = exponenets.

Is this exactly the way the terms are presented in our text book?

(4a^2c^4)(3b^4c)
= 12a^2b^4c^5
The a and b exponents stay the same because you are not multiplying them by another same term with an exponent. C now has an exponent of 5, because when you are multiplying like terms with exponents, you add the exponents together. c^4 times c would be c^5. (No exponent on a term is considered to be 1).
