# For each hook-up (figure a), determine whether there is a single repeater machine that will do the same work. If so, describe or draw it.

**Solution:**

Given, the figure represents the work done by each hook-up.

We have to find a single repeater machine.

A repeater machine is a hypothetical machine which automatically enlarges items several times.

We know that, when two machines are hooked up their stretching power is multiplied.

Stretching power = (× 7³) × (× 7²)

= 7³ × 7²

Using __law of exponents__,

a^{m} × a^{n} = a^{m + n}

= 7^{3 + 2}

= 7⁵

Therefore, (× 7⁵) is a single repeater machine that will do the same work.
