First we will simplify the expression. Then we will put it in the form. To multiply we will start by making everything a fraction: When we multiply the numerators we will use the rule for exponents when we multiply the x's: Add the exponents: which simplifies to: 63/9 = 7 and to divide the x's we use the rule for exponents when you divde: Subtract the exponents: or The expression is now simplified. To put it in form we will use a property of negative exponents: which simplifies to We can now see that c = 7 and e = 12.
