Work Step by Step

We start with the given expression: $2n^3\times3n^{-2}$ We apply the commutative and associative properties of multiplication: $(2\times3)(n^3n^{-2})$ We multiply the coefficients: $(6)(n^3n^{-2})$ To multiply powers with the same base, we add the exponents: $6n^{3+(-2)}=6n^{1}=6n$
