Multiply and Simplify:

Can you simplify down any further?

please and thank you

  • Math -

    using the general
    (a-b)^3 = a^3 - 3a^2b + 3ab^2 - b^3

    (a^x - a^-x)^3
    = a^3x - 3a^2xa^-x + 3a^xa^-2x - a^-3x
    = a^3x - 3a^x + 3a^-x - a^-3x

    Not sure where you want to go from here.

  • Math -

    It would be good as it is. If you want, you can replace
    3a^(-x) by 3/a^x and
    -a^(-3x) by -1/a^(3x)
    which may be considered more explicit.
