Can you simplify 2 to the third power times 2 to the fifth power?
Yes, the exponential property
So, your problem can be simplified to
Beware that if you have an addition/subtraction (e.g
- Simplify the following expressions. Beware of trick questions. When simplification is not possible, leave in exponential form.
- Solve for x in
#4^3 / 4^x = 4^10#. Hint: think of integer addition/subtraction rules.
