Example 1 multiply a2 by a6.
a2 X a6 = (a X a) X (a X a X a X a X a X a)
= a X a X a X a X a X a X a X a
Notice that the index in the result is the sum of the indices given,
e.g . a5 X a7 = a5+7 = a12
a8 X a = a9 remember that a = a1
am X an = am+n .
Multiply 2c3 d e2 by -5c2 d5e
(2c4 d e3)
X (-5c2 d6e
) = (2ccccdeee) X (-5ccdddddde)
= -2 X 5ccccccdddddddeeee = -10 c<sup>6 </sup>d<sup>7 </sup>e<sup>4
