# How do you simplify (x^4)(y^2)(x^2)?

Sep 22, 2015

The answer is ${x}^{6} {y}^{2}$.

#### Explanation:

When multiplying variables with exponents, add the exponents on like variables. ${a}^{m} \cdot {a}^{n} = {a}^{m + n}$

$\left({x}^{4}\right) \left({y}^{2}\right) \left({x}^{2}\right) =$

$\left({x}^{4 + 2}\right) \left({y}^{2}\right) =$

$\left({x}^{6}\right) \left({y}^{2}\right) =$

${x}^{6} {y}^{2}$
