... = 8

a n x b n = (1 3) x (2 3) = (1 x 1 x 1) x ( 2 x 2 x 2 ) = 1 x 8 = 8

You can also verify this with different values of a, b, and n.

Now coming back to the problem, let us calculate individually the values of (7x) 3 and (3y) 2 and then multiply them.

(7x) 3 = 7 3 x x 3 = (7 x 7 x 7) x x 3 (leave the ...
