Check out another example:

Rewrite ( 6 a^2 b c^4 ) ^3 = 216 a^6 b^3 c^12

* The old rules will pop up in these too!


YOUR TURN:

Rewrite

( -4 x y^5 z^3 )^2


BUT, BEWARE!

You can get into a lot of trouble if you get carried away with this rule!

Look at this guy:

( x + Y )^2

Remember what it means?  Can we do this?

( x + y )^2  ?=? x^2 + y^2

BUZZZZZZZZZZZZ!  No way, Dude!

What does this really mean?
