Simplify the following using the laws of exponents:

Need help with these:

a) (9)^1/2 x 4^2/24

b) 16 x 2^x+2

Simplify each of the following:


b) b) 3 sqrt x^1/4 sqrt x/ 5 sqrt x^2

c) (ab)^2x+y /a^x b^y

Need these answers double checked:

c) 3^-8/3^-6 x 3^-5
3^-8/3^-6+-5
3-8^ 3^-11
3^-19

d) (4^-2 x 2^-4)^-1
(4^2 x 2^4)
4^2 2^4

  • math (please double check my answers) -

    a) (9)^1/2 x 4^2/24
    according to the way you typed it...
    = 3 x 16/24
    = 2

    b) you probably meant
    16 x 2^(x+2)
    = 2^4 x 2^(x+2) = 2^(x+6)

    3 sqrt x^1/4 sqrt x/ 5 sqrt x^2
    - the order of operation is too ambiguous , use brackets to make it clear.

    c) 3^-8/3^-6 x 3^-5
    = (3^-8)/(3^-6) * (3^-5)
    = 3^(-8 + 6 - 5)
    = 3^-7
    or
    1/3^7

    (4^-2 x 2^-4)^-1
    = 4^2 * 2^4
    = 16(16) = 256

    notice we use * or brackets for multiplication and
    we use / for ÷
