yo im in 8th grade and ik how to do that shit.
we did it the other day. make it so you can cancle somethign by factoring and jjust keep goin gtill u cant anymore.
When you multiply a base and its exponent with another base and its exponent, you add the exponents.
(X^(a+1)) x (x^(a-2)) = x^((a+1)+(a-2)) = x^(2a-1)
When you divide a base and its exponent with another base and its exponent, you subtract the exponents. (Remember to distribute the negative one when you subtract.)
(x^(6a+7)) / (x^(2a-1)) = x^((6a+7) - (2a-1)) = x^(4a+8) = x^(4a) + x^8
shit, on the last part I meant:
x^(4a + 8) = x^4a times x^8 but you can probably leave it as x^(4a + 8)
