How do you simplify #c^3v^9c^-1c^0#?
Terms that have exponentials and the same base can have their exponentials added together, to get to
I'm assuming we are answering the question asked (with the c and v terms). In case the v was meant to be a c, I'll do that next.
Start with the original:
We can take terms with the same base and add their exponents together, like this:
In case all the terms are meant to be c terms, it'd look like:
