Remember: When multiplying exponentials, there are two laws that can help you simplify the expression.

1st Multiplication Law: If the exponentials have the same base, add the powers.

2nd Multiplication Law: If the exponentials have the same power, multiply the bases.

Use the above laws to simplify the following problems.

1. 123 × 23 = ____________

2. 46 × 36 = ____________

3. 55 × 53 = ____________

4. 254 × 44 = ____________

5. 39 × 339 = ____________

6. 1012 × 104 = ____________

7. 75 × 35 = ____________

8. 246 × 36 = ____________

Problem number 3 follows the 1st law for multiplication of exponentials (bases are the same). Write a problem that follows the 2nd law for multiplication of exponentials and simplify it.
