Answer:

#1.2^3 = 1.728#

Explanation:

We would do this in exactly the same way as if we we had variables.

#x^5 xx x^-2 = x^(5-2) = x^3" or "x^5 xx x^-2 = x^5/x^2 = x^3#

If the bases are the same and you are multiplying, ADD the indices.

#1.2^5 xx 1.2^-2 = 1.2^(5-2) = 1.2^3#

This can be calculated to give #1.728#
