    If f(x) = x^(1/2) and g(x) = x^(1/3), what is f(x) * g(x)?

    can anyone solve this? Dont quite understand the solution in destroyer.

    f(x)=x^1/3
    g(x)=x^1/2
    therefore
    f(x)*g(x)=x^(1/2)*x^(1/3)=x^(5/6)


    when multiplying numbers with the same base and different exponents, add the exponents and keep the base to get the answer. Hope that helps!
