Exponent Rules

To multiply exponents with the same base, ADD the powers x*x x • x*x*x = x*x*x*x*x x ^{2+3} = x^{5}To multiply exponents, ADD powers x • x x • x*x*x = x*x*x*x x ^{1+3} = xTo multiply exponents, ADD powers x x x•x To multiply exponents, ADD powers x ^{1+5+3} = xTo multiply exponents, ADD powers x x To multiply exponents, ADD powers x x x To multiply exponents, ADD powers x ^{5+-3} = xTo raise a power to another power, MULTIPLY powers (x x ^{5*3} = xTo raise a power to another power, MULTIPLY powers (x x To raise a power to another power, MULTIPLY powers (x x (x To raise several powers to another power, MULTIPLY ALL (inside) powers by the outside power. x ^{5*7}y^{3*7}= x yTo raise several powers to another power, MULTIPLY ALL (inside) powers by the outside power. (x 8 x y To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers x ^{3}x ^{2} numerator - denominator = x = 3 - 2 x To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers numerator - denominator x ^{2}x ^{7}= x To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers numerator - denominator x ^{5}x ^{8}= x To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers x ^{3}x ^{3} numerator - denominator = x Whole number = To divide exponents, SUBTRACT powers numerator - denominator x ^{2}y^{4}x ^{8}y^{7}=x y Parentheses first (raise both powers (2 and 4) to the 3rd power) x y (x •x ^{5}= x y |
