I suspect I am a bit unique here. I'm struggling with a math problem for a business model rather than a homework assignment. It's been quite a while since I have worked with exponents and I am hoping someone can assist me with a question.

I have the following calculations:

280*.985^11

280*.985^10

280*.985^9

280*.985^8

280*.985^7

280*.985^6

280*.985^5

280*.985^4

280*.985^3

280*.985^2

280*.985^1

The base and coefficient are the same, but the exponent is not. I know that I can't add the exponents because they are not like terms. Is there a way to simplify this into one formula or do I need to calculate each one independently?

Thank you in advance for your assistance!
