# What I’ve Learned This Week

**Week of October 24th:**

The most noticeable skill I’ve learned this week was the exponent’s different rules.

**Rule: When multiplying powers with the same base, you add the exponents.**

This rule is pretty straight forward, you use the base and add up the bases, and use the sum as the exponent for your new multiplied number.

**Rule: When dividing powers with the same base, you subtract the exponents.**

When you’re dividing two exponents with the same base, you subtract the two exponents, keep the same base and add the new exponent.

**Rule: To raise a power to a power, multiply the exponents.**

Simply multiply the two exponents and you have your power raised to the other power.

**Rule: When the exponent of a power is zero, the value of the power is one.**

The value of the power will always result as one when the exponent is zero, unless the value is zero where it’s undefined.
