Perform the indicated operations using the laws of exponents. Express the result using positive exponents. ( 10 6 10 8 ) 2

To determine

To calculate: The value of the expression (106108)2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The power of 10 expression is (106108)2.

Formula used:

The expression for the dividing the powers of 10 is;

10a÷10b=10ab

The expression for the conversion of the raising a power of 10 to a power is;

(10a)b=10ab

The expression for the Negative power of 10 is;

10a=110a

Calculation:

Consider the provided power of 10 expression.

(106108)2

Here, powers of 10 are dividing. So, subtract the exponents.

(106108)2=(106÷108)2=(1068)2=(102)2

Recall the expression for raising a power of 10 to a power
