Tanisha pose la question : I would just like to double check if something like 5x squared times 4x cubed equals 20x to the power of 5??
It's just that we were told you can only answer an equation like this if the base is the same...so does that mean the x part or the whole thing like 5x?
I'm sorry if that didn't make sense!

BEDMAS solving for X 
20070207 

damian pose la question : Hi, I am having a problem understanding why when using BEDMAS the text book example of the following question has used bedmas and reduced the calculation to 4/3.
Text book formula: X/200,000 = (X  90,000) / 150,000 X = 4/3 * (X  90,000) X = 360,000
My solution: I always thought that when you do something to one side you do the same to the other. Why would the equation bring the 200,000 / 150,000 down to 4 / 3 I would think it would look something like this. X/200,000 = (X  90,000) / 150,000 X = 200,000*((X  90,000) / 150,000) Stephen La Rocque lui répond.
