    Exponentials - Quick Question

    Simplify:

    exp(x^3 )^3  = exp(3x^3 )

    No, not quite right.

    If you put some values in for x then you'll see that's it not right.

    The rule you need is:

    (x^n)^m=x^{nm}

    Hope that helps!

    that was the answer you would have found if you followed the hint and that you found =)

    \exp(x^3)^3=\left(e^{x^3} \right)^3=e^{3x^3}=\exp(3x^3)
