- Product Rule
- When you multiply 2 powers with the same base, add the exponents!
- Oh! So when 6^3 is multiplied by 6^4, it equals 6^7!
- Quotient Rule
- When you divide 2 powers with the same base, you subtract the exponents!
- So 4^8 divided by 4^3 equals 4^5, thank you!
- Power Rule
- When you raise a power to a power, multiply the exponents!
- That makes so much sense! So (4^3)^5 equals 4^15!
- Zero Exponent
- A base raised to the power of 0, will always equal 1.
- Oh yeah! So 4^0 is 1 and so is 1,765^0 is 1!
- Negative Exponents
- A base raised to a negative power is equal to its reciprocal.
- So 5^-7 is equal to 1/5^7!
- Now We all Understand Exponents!
