- so for example.. 3⁶ * 3⁷ will equal 3⁴² ?
- yes.. also known as the product rule Mrs. K !
- when the bases are the same, you only add the exponents not multiply the base.
- so the problem 7⁰ = 1 ?
- If a number is raised to the 0 power the answer will be 1
- The exponent rule is Product to Power meaning distributing the outside exponent to every term inside the parenthesis.
- YES.
- we call it the zero exponent rule too.
- the problem 4⁻³ will be 1/4³ ?
- when its a negative exponent it means to put a 1 over it as a fraction
- yes James. That is correct
- The problem 7⁴/ 7³ will be?
- when dividing and the bases are the same. You only need to subtract the exponents.
- It will be 7⁴-³ !
- Explain this exponent rule Jack.
- (YZ)⁶=
- Its the Power to a Power rule. Multiplying both the outside and inside exponents.
- (X²)²=
- Whats the exponent rule and explain it Jasmine.
