Solutions

Chapter 1.2, Problem 68E

(a)

To determine

To simplify: the given expression (x8y416y43)14 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 68E

  (x8y416y43)14=2y43x2

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression

  (x8y416y43)14

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  (x8y416y43)14

Now, use the law of exponents, which states

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

And combine like terms

  (x8y416y43)14=(x8)14(y4)14(24)14(y43)14=(x)8×(14)(y)(4)×(14)(2)4×(14)(y)43×(14)=x2y21y13=2y43x2 [an=1an]

Hence,

  (x8y416y43)14=2y43x2

(b)

To determine

To simplify: the given expression (8y34y3z6)13 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 68E

  (8y34y3z6)13=y34z22

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression

  (8y34y3z6)13

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  (8y34y3z6)13

Now, use the law of exponents, which states

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

And combine like terms

  (8y34y3z6)13=(23)13(y34)13(y3)13(z6)13=(2)3×(13)(y)34×(13)(y)3×(13)(z)6×(13)=21y14y1z2=12×y114×z2 =y34z22

Hence,

  (8y34y3z6)13=y34z22
