I have a quick question. In my book, there is a question that says to express each of the following products in terms of [tex]\prod_{n=1}^\k\a{i}[/tex], where [tex]k[/tex] is constant. Now, my question is this: [tex]\prod_{n=1}^\k\[/tex]ka_i. Would i just pull the [tex]k[/tex] out becuase it is only a constant and move that to in front of the product? This almost looks like a property that is similar with summation, but I think I have to do more than simply move the [tex]k[/tex]. Anyone understand/assist? Thank you all. I hope everyone can understand my LaTeX. The number atop the product is supposed to be k, NOT 1. Damn latex.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
