## Understanding (a^3)^2 without Exponents

The expression (a^3)^2 might seem confusing at first glance, but it's actually quite straightforward when broken down. Let's explore how to write it without exponents.

### Breaking Down the Exponents

**a^3:**This means "a multiplied by itself three times": a * a * a**(a^3)^2:**This means "a^3 multiplied by itself two times": (a * a * a) * (a * a * a)

### Expanding the Expression

Expanding the expression, we get:

**(a * a * a) * (a * a * a) = a * a * a * a * a * a**

### Simplifying with Multiplication

Since we are multiplying the same variable 'a' by itself six times, we can write it as:

**a * a * a * a * a * a = a^6**

### Conclusion

Therefore, **(a^3)^2** is equivalent to **a^6**. This demonstrates that when dealing with exponents raised to another exponent, we simply multiply the powers.
