9^3=(3^2)^3 and 27^2=(3^3)^2

so its (3^2)^3 x (3^3)^2

which is 3^6 x 3^6

=3^12

Oh so basically when you are doing 3 * 3 whatever the powers are you add them and then it will be 3 to the power of the product of the two powers

you can use powers in your post like this....

you must replace the { } brackets with [ ] brackets.

Use:

{a^b}^c=a^{bc}

a^b * a^c = a^{b + c}

I tried working it out but
the small numbers at top are called powers, power means how many time the number is multiplied by itself. You can only multiply same numbers but with different powers. When you multyply powers you sum them. 8 to power of 6 is (2 to power of 3) to power of 6

I've just finished my calculations but it looks like @missradioactive has beat me to it! She replied to your question with the calculations in the other thread

But I can still give you the walk through if you want.

It's against the rules in the study help forums. The idea is to help people understand how to do the question, not to supply homework answers.
