Algebra I

(-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!
