Answer:

#20st = 2xx2xx5xxsxxt#

Explanation:

You need to write the given term or expression as the product of its prime factors. This is sometimes also called expanded form.

#20st = 2xx2xx5xxsxxt" "larr# these are all prime factors.

The variables are really easy to do because even if there are indices, you can see exactly how many of each there are.

So #36s^3t^2# would be expanded as:

#2xx2xx3xx3xxsxxsxxsxxtxxt#
