what is the product of 8x^2y and 2xy^3 using the laws of exponents??

math 
JJ
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.

16x^2y^2x^3y^3??

math 
JJ
(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.

so 16x^3y^4
