M = 8 N = 10
Multiplying exponents adds the exponent, meaning that inside of the brackets, it is a^4 * b^5. Multiply the exponents by two because you are squaring the entire equation. Therefore, m=8 and n=10
M = 8 and N= 10. (I mean, I'm just presuming.) I took the exponents of the a value (3 and 1) and added them together, multiplying it by two, because the whole equation is to the power of 2. I did the same for b. (3*2)^2.
