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

  • math -

    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.

  • math -

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

  • math -

    (-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

    thank you !

  • math -

    Yes. that is it. I hope it makes sense to you.
