This week, I learned about the exponents laws, and here are some of them:

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

1) • =

5•5•5•5•5•5•5=

2) • =

3•3•3•3•3=

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

1) ÷ =

2) ÷ =

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

Rule: When a product is raised to an exponent, you can rewrite each factor in the product with the same exponent.

( 3 × 2 )

( 3 × 2 ) ( 3 × 2 ) ( 3 × 2 ) = •

Rule: When a quotient is raised to an exponent, you can rewrite each number in the quotient with the same exponent.

1) ÷ = = 1

Rule: When the exponent of a power is zero, the value of the power is 1 (as long as the base is zero)

[ 2× ( -3 ) ]

= •

= -7776
