Rules Of Exponents

  1. 1. Multiply   Divide  Exponent of Exponent  Negative Exponents  Exponents Video  Authors Page  Resources
  2. 2. Simplify the expression   Rewrite this as (x*x*x)(x*x*x*x*x)=  Did you notice that 3 + 5 = 8?  So, our rule is:  Be careful! We must have the same base for each exponent. So,  Click here to give it a try! Quit
  3. 3. Answer Quit Key
  4. 4. Simplify the expression  Rewrite this as (x*x*x*x)/(x*x)=   Did you notice that 4 – 2 = 2?  So, our rule is Remember, just like multiplication, we  must have the same base.  Click here to give it a try! Quit
  5. 5. Answer Quit Key
  6. 6. Simplify the expression   Rewrite this as (x*x*x)(x*x*x)=  Did you notice that 3*2 = 6?  So, our rule is  We only have one base here, so we don’t worry about similar bases.  Click here to give it a try! Quit
  7. 7. Answer Quit Key
  8. 8. Simplify the expression   This one is a bit more tricky than the rest- your expression will become a fraction!  Take your expression and change the exponent to a positive. Now take 1 over your new expression.  So becomes Now, our rule is   Click here to give it a try! Quit
  9. 9. Answer Quit Key
  10. 10. Click here to watch a short video clip  playing a song to help you remember your rules! Quit
  11. 11. Multiply Exponent to Exponent   Cannot Simplify- Different Bases! Negative Exponents  Divide  Cannot Simplify- Different Bases! Quit
