# Algebra 112

(-3xy^3)^4
Would it be:
-81x^4y^12

Almost, but not quite. Just watch your negative signs.

So it would be positive?

(-)*(-)*(-)*(-)= +
right.

Thanks

Simplify. Do not use negative exponents in the answer. 12x-2y4 -3xy-7 There should be a line between like a fraction but it did not copy or paste. This is the answer I got 12 x^-2 y^4 = 12y^4/x^2 -3xy^-7 = -3x/y^7 it was wrong.
