## Adding - x^3y^3

To remember this try simple numbers you know first

10^2times10^2

=10times10times10times10

=10,000

Now try x^3y^3

There is nothing to remember if you break this down.

x^3y^3=x\timesx\timesx\timesy\timesy\timesy

You can put these in a different order

x^3y^3=xy\timesxy\timesxy

Which can then be written as:

x^3y^3=(xy)^3

NOTE:

If it is x^3y^2

Which equals  x\timesx\timesx\timesy\timesy

There is an odd x so the above can’t be achieved.
