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

Math 
Reiny,
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 ?

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