How to get wolfram|alpha to simplify equations?

I am trying to get wolfram alpha to simplify a specific kind of equations, but it is unable to comprehend it. I have equations of the type 3^2 * 3^6 that I want to simply to an exponential form, like 3^2 * 3^6 = ?^?, but when I ask alpha to simplify the equation, I get the answer as the solution to this equation in return.

I know this is not really a question of significance to this community, but please, if any of you knows how to get wolfram|alpha to compute problems of this type and give the results I want, tell me how. Thanks in advance.

In this case you probably want "factor 3^2*3^6" which return 3^8

For such questions however, you might want to start to use Mathematica instead, as it will give you much more control as you move to the next steps
