1 Properties of Exponents Examples and Practice

2 Product of Powers Property How many factors of x are in the product x 3 ∙x 2 ? Write the product as a single power. In general: 5 factors: x∙x∙x∙x∙x x∙x∙x∙x∙x = x 5 x m ∙x n = x m + n

3 Question #1 Simplify the expression: a 3  a 5 a. a 15 b. a 8 c. a 2 d. 1/a 2
