1-82.

Some of the expressions given below are currently written in the form $p^{q}$ . If the expression is of the form $p^{q}$ , identify $p$ and $q$. If not, answer “not in $p^{q}$ form.”

Example: $(3x)^{(2 +y)}$

Solution: $p = 3x$, $q = 2 + y$

Example: $5\left(7\right)^{2}$

Solution: Not in $p^{q}$ form (even though part of it is).

1. $6^{2}$

$q = 2$

1. $10 · 6^{2}$

not the correct form

1. $(x+3y)^{(2−r)}$

$p = x + 3y$
$q = 2 − r$

1. $4^{3} − 3^{4}$

not the correct form
