Work Step by Step

We start with the given expression: $7x^{5}\times8x^{1}$ We rearrange and regroup the expression using the associative and commutative properties of multiplication: $(7\times8)(x^{5}x^{1})$ We multiply the coefficients: $56(x^{5}x^{1})$ To multiply powers with the same base, we add the exponents: $56(x^{5+1})=56x^{6}$
