Math Help - Simplify using index laws.

1. Simplify using index laws.

Hello everybody! Im new here and new to this algebra math stuff. can u help me out please?

I need to know the answer to this problem and the process you used to solve it.

Simplify:

$(3x^4y^2)(2x^2y)^3$

2. = $(3x^4y^2)(2)^3(x^2)^3(y)^3)$

Now simplify by collecting the numbers, x terms and y terms.

Apply the rules $(a^n)^m = a^{mn}$ and $a^n \cdot a^m = a^{n + m}$ that you should have learned (reviewing examples from your classnotes and textbook will help).
