  1. (a)(ar^8) = a^2 r^8 = 432
    c*e = ar^3 * ar^5 = ...

  4. Well, you just didn't catch my typo.

    c*e = (1/3)r^3 * (1/3)r^5
    = (1/3)* (1/3)r^8
    = (1/3)(432)
    = 144

    So, my correction was wrong. Clearly you did not examine my work to see where the mistake was made. You just threw up your hands and complained I was wrong. Bad form, I must say. The mistake was not hard to find.
