# 25-34 Simplifying Expressions with Exponents Simplify each expression, and eliminate any negative exponents(s). (a) ( x 3 y 3 ) − 1 (b) ( a 2 b − 2 ) − 3 ( a 3 ) − 2 (c) ( x 2 y − 2 ) − 2 ( 2 y − 3 x 2 ) 3 29.

To determine

a)

To Simplify:

The given expressions, (x3y3)1.

Explanation

Given:

The given expression is (x3y3)âˆ’1.

Procedure used:

According to the Zero and Negative Exponents rule, we can see that if aâ‰ 0 is a real number and n is a positive integer, then

a0=1 and aâˆ’n=1an

From, the law of exponents, we know that

(ab)m=ambmâ€¦Â (1)

aman=am+nâ€¦(2)

aman=

To determine

b)

To Simplify:

The given expressions, (a2b2)3(a3)2.

To determine

c)

To Simplify:

The given expressions, (x2y2)2(2y3x2)3.
