wanted to know if I got the correct answer?
question (2a10b2)(3a2b2)

• math algebra -

do you mean something like this: [2(a^10)(b^2)][3(a^2)(b^2)]
if so, then
for constants, we just multiply them normally,, for the variables, recall some laws of exponent,, multiplying terms of same base is also equal to base raised to sum of its exponents,, for example
5^2 * 5^5 = 5^(2+5) = 5^7
x^3 * x^(-4) = x^(3-4) = x^(-1)
thus
for constants: 2*3 = 6
for base a: a^10 * a^2 = a^12
for base b: b^2 * b^2 = b^4
multiplying all of them, we have
6a^12*b^4

hope this helps~ :)
