Exponents: in general a r r-th POWER of a a: BASE (strictly positive) r: EXPONENT (any real number)

Rules for exponents (1) a 3 a 4 can be written more simply : Rule 1 (product of powers with same base) : Rule 2 (quotient of powers with same base) :

6
Rules for exponents (3) Rule 3 (power of a power) :

7
