(-4m^3)(2m+m^2)

I have to use the property of exponents to rewrite the expression.
I'm just asking if -3^6 is right.
(we don't have to solve it--just simplify it)
Thank you!

1. multiply the (-4m^3) by (2m+m^2)
= -8m^4 - 4m^5

that's all
I can't even see what you did wrong to get -3^6
what happened to your m's ?

2. If i have two base variables with exponents for example:
4x(3x)
After getting x^2-would i have just ONE variable base?
i.e. 4(3x^2)
or place the exponent on BOTH variable bases like this:
4x^2(3x^2)?
Thanks!
