Hi,
\(7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b = 7 * 7^b\)

now \(7 * 7 ^b =7^1*7^b=7^{(b+1)}\)as per the property of power..

B

Now it makes much more sense. Kudos!

7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b =

A. 7^b
B. 7^(b + 1)
C. 7^(7b)
D. 8^b
E. 49^B


Simplifying the equation, we have:

7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b

7^b(1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1)

7^b(7) = 7^(b + 1)

Answer: B

Given 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b + 7^b

Just added the above to give us = 7*7^b

and since bases are same, we can add the exponents

Giving answer as B => 7^(b+1)
