(-2x^4)^2
y

    Again I will assume you mean:

    (-2x^4)^2 / y

    -2 *-2 = + 4
    x^4 * x^4 = x^8
    so
    4 x^8 / y
    which is the same as
    4 x^8 y^-1

    I am doing polynomials, is that the same

  • Math - , Monday, August 4, 2014 at 6:52pm

    yes :)

    although a polynomial normally has more than one term
    for example
    x^2 + 2 x + y + y^3 .........

    You are welcome
    poly means more than one or many in general
