the order of operations takes precedence here ...
This may be a dumb question, but I'm really totally blanking on this D: So please no laughing :/
Anyway
In the following example:
My question is simply about the "3" that is the exponent of the whole parenthesis group. I know that the exponents within the parenthesis are to be multiplied and not added as typical for exponents. So you multiply the exponents by 3 BUT do you multiply the base numbers by 3 or do you square it to that 3rd exponent???
I'm so confused about that because I could of swore a teacher once told me to multiply the base number and not square it but I need to be 100% certain. Thanks and any help would be MUCH appreciated! Thanks!
Ah, I see. Hmm Interesting thanks man.
Also. Question here
In that case WITHOUT the parenthesis around "-3" then does that mean the answer would be -27 or +27?
I am pretty sure it would be positive because a square without parenthesis is negative then that times a negative is positive.
Hmm is that correct?
