• Exponent of Exponent

• Negative Exponents

• Exponents Video

• Authors Page

• Resources

• Simplify the expression

• Rewrite this as (x*x*x)(x*x*x*x*x)=

• Did you notice that 3 + 5 = 8?

• So, our rule is:

• Be careful! We must have the same base for each exponent. So,

• Simplify the expression

• Rewrite this as (x*x*x*x)/(x*x)=

• Did you notice that 4 – 2 = 2?

• So, our rule is

• Remember, just like multiplication, we must have the same base.

• Click here to give it a try!

• Simplify the expression

• Rewrite this as (x*x*x)(x*x*x)=

• Did you notice that 3*2 = 6?

• So, our rule is

• We only have one base here, so we don’t worry about similar bases.

• Click here to give it a try!

• Simplify the expression

• This one is a bit more tricky than the rest- your expression will become a fraction!

• Take your expression and change the exponent to a positive. Now take 1 over your new expression.

• So becomes
