what is the product of -8x^2y and -2xy^3 using the laws of exponents??
Multiply the coefficients (numbers in front).
for the letters with exponents. You keep the letter and you add the exponents.
Remember that y is y^1
Try it and I will check it for you.
(-8)(-2) that takes care of the coefficents = 16
(x^2)*(x^1) = x^3
(y^1)(y^3) = y^4
Now, put them all together and you will have the answer.
thank you !
Yes. that is it. I hope it makes sense to you.
It really does thank you. and quick questions do you do tutoring lessons??
Sorry, I don't. I am on her quite often.
