Example Question #11 : How To Multiply Integers

Solve

Explanation:

First, distribute the exponents to the numerators and denominators:

.

Then, rewrite the problem in expanded form:

Next, rewrite the problem so that you only have prime factors in both numerators and denominators:

.

Last, simplify by "canceling out" like terms, leaving you with

and multiply across both numerators and denominators, which will give you .

Explanation:

Example Question #18 : How To Multiply Integers

Rewrite as a number in base ten:

Explanation:

Example Question #19 : How To Multiply Integers

Simplify the following:

Explanation:

In this problem, you need to use the proper order of operations to find the correct answer: PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication-Division, Addition-Subtraction).

Exponents show up first in this problem, so the first step is to simplify:

This results in:

The next step is the multiplication:

This results in:

The next step is to do the remaining addition and subtraction from left to right.
