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?
Can someone please help me with this?
Thanks in advance!

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.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

maybe i shouldnt post since i might be wayy off and your talking about something else

but you add exponents when your multiplying like terms eg



when your just adding

you keep exponent


or are you talking about something else and now i look silly roflol
