Simplify the following expression:
The following pictures are the exponent laws. You can use them as reference.
Notice that the base for both terms are not the same. So, we need to find a way to make the them the same.
Now, to make these bases the same, note that:
Replacing 9 with 32, we have:
To proceed, we need to simplify the term:
Using the exponent law as shown in the picture, we get:
Now, 2 multiply by 2 gives 4.
To proceed, we need to simplify:
Now, 4 minus 2 gives 2.
Finally, we have the simplest term: 32
Therefore, the answer is A.
