Can you add unknowns that have coefficients and exponents?

the unknowns must be the same variable and the exponents have to be the same. examples) x4 + y4 cannot be added because they are not the same variable. x3 + x2 cannot be added because they have different exponents. 3y6 + 5y6 can be added because they have the same variable and exponents. (answer: 8y6)

What happens when you multiply two variables with different exponents?

When you multiply two variables with different exponents, the exponents are added. For example, if you multiply x^2 by x^3, the result is x^(2+3) = x^5. Similarly, if you multiply x^3 by x^(-2), the result is x^(3+(-2)) = x^1 = x.

You multiply the exponents.

How do you raise a power to a power?

The rule is that you multiply the exponents. So if I have 2 squared and I want to raise it to the third power, you multiply the 2x3=6. When you multiply powers you add the exponents. When you raise exponents to a power you multiply. This works for rational exponents which can be used to represent roots as well.
