If you are given:
then what you've done is correctly apply the property of exponents .
However, if you are given:
then there isn't much you can do to simplify that I know of.
I just stumbled on a problem in my math work.
My job is to simplify/reduce the following exponentiation:
My solution for it is following:
4^(x+1)x-1 = 4^(x+1)(x-1) = 4^x2-1
But I got a feeling, that it's wrong. So I want to know, what I'm doing wrong.
I will presume that the problem is
So looking only at the exponent we have
If you need more, let us know.
I'm rather curious about this. I can see no way to put the original expression into something that it can be reduced to.
I've tried working with the tip (thanks), and my current result is the following:
4(x+1)^x * (x+1)^-1 = 41/x+1^(-x) * 1/x+1
Again, am I not sure, if I'm doing it right. So it would be nice with a little more.
