i need to simplify this:
m^3 X m^5=?
for some reason i just can't think what to do!
would it = (m)^8??

Yes, that's correct.
thanks for answering, however how would i show this if it was m^3/m^5?? would it be (m^3/m^5)??
It would but that doesn't really help. In that case use the law of exponents that says
For these simple observe that because there are a total of 3+ 5= 8 m's multiplied together.
Similarly, because the three m's in the numerator cancel three of the m's in the denominator leaving 5- 3= 2 m's.
