exponent law question:
Simplify the following exponents.
= (2^4) (2^(x+2) )
= a^(2x+y) b^(2x+y) / ( (a^x)(b^y) )
= a^(x+y) b^(2x)
Wouldn't there be a 4 attached to the x for the first one?
no, you add the exponents and
4 + x+2 = x+6
Hm ok. If I had (x^(a-b))^a+b
..would that be multiplication or adding of the a's and b's
