(-2x^2y)^3 * (5xy^3)^2

What is ^ and * suppose to symbolize?

^=power
*=times/multiply

(-2x^2y)^3 * (5xy^3)^2

Sorry, I do not recall how to do this. I don't want to misguide you.

First remove the parentheses by cubing the first term and squaring the second.
(-8x^6y^3)*(25x^2y^6)= can you take it from here.

Is this correct now after i revised it Multiply. 3xy^2(5xy-4x+6y) 3xy^2(5xy)=15x^2y^3 3xy^2(-4x)=-12x^2y^2 3xy^2(6y)=18xy^3 so i get from this 15x^2y^3-12x^2y^2+18xy^3 correct awsome i just thought that the 15x^2y^3-12x^2y^2

When you have 4xy^3 * 2x^2y * 5xy^2 Would you add the first number and then add the powers? 11x^4y^6 ??? Thank you multiply, multiply, multiply 4*2*5 * x1+2+1 y3+1+2 You got the powers right, but the coefficent is 40

1. Should be 8a15 but I think that is just a typo because the * and 8 are on the same key of the keyboard. 2-4 look ok to me. 5. What you have looks ok to me; however, can't these two terms be multiplied to give 200x8y9 ? Yeah
