Suppose we have the product(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex][(\pm ia) (\pm ib)]^{-\alpha}[/tex]

where[itex]a, b, \alpha >0[/itex]. For which of the combinations (+,+), (+,-), (-,+), and (-,-) is the following property satisfied?

[tex][(\pm ia) (\pm ib)]^{-\alpha}=(\pm ia)^{-\alpha} (\pm ib)^{-\alpha}[/tex]
