To evaluate \(3^{-1}*3^5\), you must be comfortable with exponent rules.

 

\(3^{-1}*3^5\) Use the exponent rule that\(a^b*a^c=a^{b+c}\)to simplify the expression.
\(3^{-1}*3^5=3^{-1+5}=3^4\) Now, evaluate 3^4.
\(3^4=\underbrace{3*3}*\underbrace{3*3}\) To ease computation, calculate it as the following as multiplication can be done in any order.
\(3^4=9*9=81\)
