- Can you show us another example?
- Properties of Exponents: Product of Powersx^m • x^n = x^(m+n)Example.:9^1 • 9^2 = 9•9•9 = 729
- The product of powers property states that when we multiply two exponents of the same base, we can just add the the exponents together.
- Sure!
- Properties of Exponents: Product of PowersMy facebook followers increase at a rate of 6^2 per day. How many many followers will I have on day 6^3?
- How is this a REAL world example? It's hardly credible. Hehe.
- Let's use a real world example.
- YES!
- Properties of Exponents: Product of Powersx^m • x^n = x^(m+n)Solution: 6^2 • 6^3 = 6^(2+3) = 6^5 = 7776
- *trying hard to contain laughter*
- As you can see we need to multiply the rate and the number of days which are both in exponents, if you solve it then you will see that on day 6^3, I will have 7776 followers.
- Does this make sense?
