# Exponents Power exponent 5 3 base Example: 125

Exponents Power exponent 5 3 base Example: 125 53 means that 53 is the exponential form of the number 125. 53 means 3 factors of 5 or 5 x 5 x 5 The Laws of Exponents: #1: Exponential form: The exponent of a power indicates how many times the base multiplies itself. n x x x x xxxx n times n factors of x 3 Example: 5 5 5 5 #2: Multiplying Powers: If you are multiplying Powers with the same base, KEEP the BASE & ADD the EXPONENTS! m n x x x So, I get it! When you multiply Powers, you add the

exponents! m n 2 6 23 2 63 29 512 #3: Dividing Powers: When dividing Powers with the same base, KEEP the BASE & SUBTRACT the EXPONENTS! m x m n m n x x x n x So, I get it! When you divide Powers, you subtract the exponents! 6 2 6 2 4 2 2 2 2 16

Product, I apply the exponent to all factors of the product. n n x y 2 n 2 ( ab) a b 2 #6: Quotient Law of Exponents: If the quotient of the bases is powered by the same exponent, then the result is both numerator and denominator , each powered by the given exponent. x y So, when I take a Power of a Quotient, I apply the exponent to all parts of the quotient. n n x n y 4

2 2 32 9 a b 2 6 81a b #7: Negative Law of Exponents: If the base is powered by the negative exponent, then the base becomes reciprocal with the positive exponent. So, when I have a Negative Exponent, I switch the base to its reciprocal with a Positive Exponent. Ha Ha! If the base with the negative exponent is in the denominator, it moves to the numerator to lose its negative sign! x m 1 m x 1 1 5 3 5 125 and 1 2 3

9 2 3 3 #8: Zero Law of Exponents: Any base powered by zero exponent equals one. 0 x 1 So zero factors of a base equals 1. That makes sense! Every power has a coefficient of 1. 50 1 and a 0 1 and (5a ) 0 1 Try these: 1. 2. 3. 2 2a b 2 0
