I'd just like to check my work on the below problem, thanks in advance!
(-a)^3(-a^3)^6
----------------
(a^6)^9
I Hope I wrote that correct.
I got
- 1/a^33
or
-1
--
a^33
P.S.
Is the degree of this polynomial 4?
1-2x^4-2x^2
you answer would not be negative. you have a negative times a negative in the top
EDIT: Actually, you (and CaptainBlack) are correct. the answer would be negative, since raisng a negative number to the 6th power makes it positive and then you are multiplying by a negative number (thanks CaptainBlack)
yes, you are correct. the degree of a polynomial is the highest power that occurs for any termP.S.
