Do you see a short-cut we can do with the exponents?

Check it out:

( x^2 )^3 = x^((2)(3)) = x^6


( w^3 )^3 = w^((3)(3)) = w^9

Here's the official rule:

( a^n )^m = a^((n)(m))

We can do messier ones too!

6 ( x^4 )^7 ( w^2 )^10 ( y^3 )^9 = 6 ( x^28 )( w^20 )( y^27 )


TRY IT:

Simplify

2 ( w^4 )^11 ( x^9 )^2 ( z^3 )^10
