remember, to multiply powers with the same base, we keep the base and add the exponents

(a^2b^2)(a1/3b1/4)

= ????

why do you use ^ to show exponents in the first bracket but not in the second bracket ?

Are they not exponents ?

Sorry, they are exponents! Fractions confuse me, would it be 2/1 + 1/3 and 2/1 + 1/4?
