Solutions

Chapter 1.2, Problem 66E

(a)

To determine

To simplify: the given expression (x5y13)35 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 66E

  (x5y13)35=x3y15

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression

  (x5y13)35

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  (x5y13)35

Now, use the law of exponents, which states

  (am)n=amn and (ab)n=anbn

And combine like terms

  (x5y13)35=(x5)35(y13)35=(x)(5)×(35)(y)13×(35)=x3y15=x3y15 [an=1an]

Hence,

  (x5y13)35=x3y15

(b)

To determine

To simplify: the given expression (2x3y14)2(8y32)13 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 66E

  (2x3y14)2(8y32)13=2x6

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression

  (2x3y14)2(8y32)13

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  (2x3y14)2(8y32)13

Now, use the law of exponents, which states

  (am)n=amn , aman=am+n and (ab)n=anbn

And combine like terms

  (2x3y14)2(8y32)13=22(x3)2(y14)2813(y32)13=4(x3)2(y14)2(23)13(y32)13=4(2)3×(13)(x)3×2(y)2×(14)(y)(32)×(13)=421x6y12y12=2x6y12+12=2x6y0=2x6 [y0=1]

Hence,

  (2x3y14)2(8y32)13=2x6
