Definition of an exponent- a number says how many times to use that number in a multiplication. It is written as a small number to the right and above the base number.
Product Rule- when multiplying two powers that have the same base, you can add the exponents.
Quotient Rule- that we can divide two powers with the same base by subtracting the exponents.When a quotient is raised to a power, the result is the quotient of the numerator to the power and the denominator to the power
Power to Power Rule- this says that to raise a power to a power you need to multiply the exponents. There are several other rules that go along with the power rule, such as the product-to-powers rule and the quotient-to-powers rule.
Definition of (k x y)^a- a type of exponential problem that is commonly used.
