### convert sum od exponents into product of exponents

Is there a way to go from having a^2+b^2=c^2 to a^2*b^2=c^2, in order for me to add the exponents if they have the same base?

Hi nando88;

I would say that you could only have that for certain values of a,b and c.

in order for me to add the exponents if they have the same base?

If they have the same base then what you really have is a much simpler equation.

Which is simple.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
