8n^{6} x -7n^{2 }=?

Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

Hi Kayla,

Since we are looking at just the multiplication of the terms 8n^{6} and -7n^{2}, with the only variable being 'n', we simply start by multiplying the 8 and the -7, which equals
**-56**. Then, we need to go back to our rules on multiplying exponents of the same variable (in this case 'n'). You will find that we simply *add *the exponents of the same variable to multiply them; thus, n^{6} x n^{2} = n^{6+2 }= **n**^{8}.

Therefore, our simplified answer would be **-56n ^{8}**

Best,

Albert K.
