How can I get Mathematica to display 25(5^h) when I input 5^(2+h)? Also, is there a way to solve this question? I've read the help. I'm studying for my final and am trying to find the answer to an even-numbered question from my text. Factor 5^(7x/2) - 5^(x^2), with sqrt(5^x) being one of the factors. The answer I get is sqrt(5^x) times( (5^7)-1). Thanks for showing me how to do these.
