I'm currently enrolled in the grade 11 University course named "Functions". I have a tutor, yet I still encounter some occasional speed bumps. Right now I'm connecting the exponent rules to simplify algebraic expressions. The power rules are simple enough, it's the coefficients that stump me. So without further adieu, I'll provide the expression below, and I'd appreciate if somebody could show me the steps of completely simplifying it: (2x^2)^3 (6x)^2  That dotted line is the division line. 2 (3x^1)^3 The answers in the back of the book got the answer as 16  3x Please illustrate how they reached this.

WAIT I MADE AN ERROR and I don't know how to edit. The actual expression that needs to be solved is: (2x^2)^3 (6x)^2  2(3x^1)^3 Sorry! I hope nobody attempted the previous expresion!
