multiply
Multiply
  • 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,

divide
Divide
  • 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.

exponent of exponent
Exponent of Exponent
  • 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!

negative exponents
Negative Exponents
  • 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
  • Now, our rule is
