Solutions

Chapter 1.2, Problem 45E

(a)

To determine

To simplify: given expression 6y3z2yz2 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 45E

  6y3z2yz2=3y2z

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression

  6y3z2yz2

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  6y3z2yz2

Now, use the second law of exponents, which states

  aman=amn

And combine like terms

  6y3z2yz2=62y31z12=3y2z1=3y2z

Hence,

  6y3z2yz2=3y2z

(b)

To determine

To evaluate: the given expression (xy2z3)4(x2y2z)3 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 45E

  (xy2z3)4(x2y2z)3=y2z9x2

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression

  (xy2z3)4(x2y2z)3

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  (xy2z3)4(x2y2z)3

Now. Simplify using law of exponents (ab)n=anbn and (am)n=amn .

  (xy2z3)4(x2y2z)3={x4(y2)4(z3)4}{(x2)3(y2)3(z)3}=x4y8z12x6y6z3

Now, use the second law of exponents, which states

  aman=amn

And combine like terms

  x4y8z12x6y6z3=x46y86z123=x2y2z9=y2z9x2

Hence,

  (xy2z3)4(x2y2z)3=y2z9x2
