Exponent Rules
 To multiply exponents with the same base, ADD the powers x*xx2 • x3 = •x*x*x =     x*x*x*x*xx2+3 = x5 To multiply exponents, ADD powers x • x3 = x•x*x*x =    x*x*x*xx1+3 = x To multiply exponents, ADD powers x5 • x3 = x x•x5•x3 = To multiply exponents, ADD powers x1+5+3 = x To multiply exponents, ADD powers x2•x5•x-3 = x To multiply exponents, ADD powers x-5 • x-6 = x x5 • x-3 = To multiply exponents, ADD powers x5+-3 = x To raise a power to another power,         MULTIPLY powers(x5)3 = x5*3 = x To raise a power to another power,         MULTIPLY powers(x5)6 = x To raise a power to another power,         MULTIPLY powers(x3)6 = x (x5y3)7 = To raise several powers toanother power, MULTIPLY ALL(inside) powers by the outside power.  x5*7y3*7= x   y To raise several powers toanother power, MULTIPLY ALL(inside) powers by the outside power.(x5y3)  = 8x    y To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers x3x2   numerator- denominator=x      =3 - 2x To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers    numerator - denominatorx2x7=x To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers    numerator - denominatorx5x8=x To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers x3x3   numerator- denominator=xWhole number= To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers    numerator - denominatorx2y4x8y7=x   y                       Parentheses first(raise both powers (2 and 4) to the 3rd power)x   y(x2y4)3•x5  •x5= x    y
