First we will simplify the expression. Then we will put it in the
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:
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.
