A) Quantity A is greater. B) Quantity B is greater. C) The two quantities are equal. D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Quantity A is equal to \(n^2*n^4 = n^{2+4} = n^6\). While quantity B is equal to \((n^2)^4 = n^{2*4} = n^8\). Thus, since the exponents are positive, the higher the exponent, the higher the quantity. Then, quantity B is greater!

I think the answer should be D, because when we put -1/2 A is bigger than B and if we put -2 so B is bigger than A, so i think the answer should be D please help me It is kind of you!

Hi, we are looking for n<-1..

when you take n as -1/2, it is >-1, and thus outside the range n<-1.

A) Quantity A is greater. B) Quantity B is greater. C) The two quantities are equal. D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Given: Quantity A: (n²)(n⁴) Quantity B: (n²)⁴

Simplify: Quantity A: n⁶ Quantity B: n⁸

From here, we can solve this question using matching operations

Since n⁶ must be POSITIVE, we can safely divide both quantities by n⁶ to get: Quantity A: 1 Quantity B: n²

Since n < -1, we know that n² is greater than 1

Answer: B
