# How do you simplify 10^3(10)^4?

Aug 1, 2016

1${0}^{3} \times {10}^{4} = {10}^{7}$

#### Explanation:

Simplify in exactly the same way as ${x}^{3} \times {x}^{4}$

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

${x}^{3} \times {x}^{4} = {x}^{7} \text{ } {10}^{3} \times {10}^{4} = {10}^{7}$

Don't be fooled by the parentheses!
