Work Step by Step

We start with the given expression: $(2x^5)(3x^{12})$ We re-arrange and regroup the factors using the associative and commutative properties of multiplication: $(2\times3)(x^5\times x^{12})$ We multiply the constants: $6(x^5\times x^{12})$ To multiply powers with the same base, we add the exponents: $ 6x^{5+12}=6x^{17}$
