I need the proof for (e^z1)(e^z2)=e^(z1+z2)

using the power series expansion for e^z=1+z+(z^2)/2! + (z^3)/3! +....

I've tried it a couple of times but cant seem to get it.

thanks for any help!!

is a result of one of the rules of exponents. It requires no proof, at least not if I'm teaching.

yeah i've proved it using exponent laws no problem but our prof said to do it the other way and wants it proved using the power series.
