Hello Community,

Where x = 3 :

a) (45x)⁴ = 332150625

b) 45(x⁴) = 3645

so when you see the formula 45x⁴, to which of the above methods does it refer?

Exponentiation has higher priority than multiplication, so it is done first.

$\displaystyle (ab)^x = a^x \cdot b^x$

$\displaystyle ab^x = a \cdot b^x$
