    Create expressions #2

    Hey guys,

    the task: Create four expressions that, when simplified using the exponent laws, are equal to 4x^6.

    1. Product Law = (4x^2) (x^4) = 4x^6

    2. Quotient Law =
    16x^8
    ------
    4x^2

    = 4x^6

    3. Power of a Power Law = (2x^3)^2 = 4x^6

    Is there any chance to create an expression for 4x^6 with the Power of Product Law or Power of a Quotient Law?

    I don't know what you mean by "power of product law" or "power of a quotient law". I have never heard of those "laws". If you mean just combining the two laws then you might consider using fractional powers.

    Re: Create expressions #2

    That is in my grade 10 math book.

    Power of a Product Law = When the base is a product, apply the exponent to each factor in the base. (xy)^m = x^m y^m

    Power of a Quotient Law = When the base is a quotient, apply the exponent to the numerator and denominator.

    x ^m
    -
    y

    x and y are together in brackets.

    =
    x^m
    ----
    y^m

    Thats what I got here.
