# How do you simplify n^3p(p^5) ?

Jan 17, 2017

See the simplification process below:

#### Explanation:

To simplify this expression use the following rules of exponents:

${x}^{\textcolor{red}{a}} \times {x}^{\textcolor{b l u e}{b}} = {x}^{\textcolor{red}{a} + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}}$

$a = {a}^{\textcolor{red}{1}}$

${n}^{3} p \left({p}^{5}\right) = {n}^{3} \left(p \times {p}^{5}\right) = {n}^{3} \left({p}^{1} \times {p}^{5}\right) = {n}^{3} {p}^{1 + 5} =$

${n}^{3} {p}^{6}$
