 Question 10776: could you please show me in which order do you apply the power to? 5y to the 5th power when y = 2 do you times 5 to the 5th power then times by 2 or do you times 5 x2 then to the 5th power plAnswer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You said 5y raised to the 5th power, with NO MENTION of PARENTHESES! I will assume that you meant this: , when y = 2. So, substitute 2 in place of the y, raise it to the 5th power, which is 32, then multiply the result times 5. It looks like this: If you had meant , then that would have been quite something else. That would have been to do what is within the parentheses first: I'm glad you didn't ask THAT one!! R^2 at SCC
