Multiplication of Monomials
Posted on 2011-02-24
Evaluate each expression when a=2 and b=-3:
I am sorry I cannot type what's below as -a squared times b to the fourth power.
This is the equation:
-a exponent of 2 b exponent of 4
The correct answer is -324
I don't really know what to do with the negative sign in front of the equation. (-a2ndb4th). Do I multiply (-) times both a2 and b4? Do I add it after I get the answer 324 as the last step? -324.
