Using the Product Rule with Exponents

When you multiply constants (variables) that have the same base, you add the exponents... but keep the base unchanged.
For example:
x^2c **·** x^3 = x^(2+3) = x^5
**(x ****· x) (x ****· x ****· x) = x^5**
"X" squared times "X" cubed equals "X" to the fifth power.
__Try a few more.__
1) p^5 **· **p^4 =
2) 2t^2 · 3t^4
3) r^2 **· **2^3 **·** r^5
4) 3x^2 **· **2x^5 **· **x^4
5) (p^2)(3p^4)(3p^2)
Answers:
1) p^9
2) 6t^6
3) 2r^10
4) 6r^11
5) 9p^8
