    I'm confused...

    You asked questions about conics, quadratics, geometry, trigonometry, basics of sequences and series, annuity, and others...then you're clueless on a simple computational problem. How?

    Most of original post is not displayed ( I can't see it anyway)

    Should questions appear as 3^2 * 3^5 ? 2^3 * 2^-1 ? and other questions on indices (powers) ?
