# How do you simplify x ^3(x^ 2 + 5x + 1)?

Jun 3, 2018

${x}^{5} + 5 {x}^{4} + {x}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

We can start by distributing the ${x}^{3}$ to all terms in the parenthesis. We get:

${x}^{5} + 5 {x}^{4} + {x}^{3}$

Notice, when we multiply the terms with exponents, we sum up the powers to get the new exponents.

Hope this helps!
