### Multimedia Student Tutorial Exponents

1. 1. Multimedia Student Tutorial<br />Stacey A. Leeth<br />Team Yellow<br />TEC-539<br />April 6, 2011<br />
2. 2. Exponents<br />
3. 3. There is a shorter way to show multiplication when the factors are the same.<br />In the example provided, 3 is the base and 2 is the exponent. The exponent tells how many times the base is used as a factor. The exponent also tells the power of the base. The answer 9 is the second power of 3. You can use other numbers as exponents. <br />For example:<br />31 = 3 (3 is the factor 1 time= 3)<br />33 = 27 (3 is the factor 3 times<br /> = 3 X 3 X 3)<br />Special Note: The product of two negative numbers is positive.<br />-25 = -32 (-2 is the factor 5 times <br /> = -2 X -2 X -2 X -2 X -2)<br />
4. 4. Here are some more examples<br />
5. 5. It’s Your Turn!! Let’s Practice<br />Solve the following:<br />62 = ? Use 6 as a factor 2 times. <br /> Remember to multiply.<br />Answer = 36<br />43 = ? Use 4 as a factor ? times.<br />Answer = 64 <br />-53 = ? Use -5 as a factor ? times.<br />Answer = 125<br />14 = ? <br />Answer = 1<br />35 = ? <br />Answer= 243 <br />
