Higher Mathematics Indices Next

4
Indices Higher Mathematics What are Indices Indices are a mathematical shorthand If, we have: We can say that this is: 3 multiplied by itself 5 times We write this as: pronounced 3 to the power 5 3 is the BASE 5 is the POWER or INDEX

5
Indices Higher Mathematics What are Indices The plural of INDEX is is written in INDEX form also known as power form or power notation INDICES So,

6
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices

7
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices Consider the following What can we make of it ? Can we generalise to make a rule ?

8
Indices Higher Mathematics 3 times 4 times 7 times

9
Indices Higher Mathematics m times n times m + n times Generalising

10
Indices Higher Mathematics When multiplying We ADD the indices Generalising

11
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – to MULTIPLY you ADD the indices

12
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices Consider the following What can we make of it ? Can we generalise to make a rule ?

13
Indices Higher Mathematics 5 times 2 times 2 terms on the bottom will cancel out 2 terms on the top

14
Indices Higher Mathematics 5 times 2 times terms 2 terms on the bottom will cancel out 2 terms on the top

15
Indices Higher Mathematics m times n times m - n terms n terms on the bottom will cancel out n terms on the top Generalising

16
Indices Higher Mathematics When dividing We SUBTRACT the indices Generalising

17
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – to DIVIDE you SUBTRACT the indices

18
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices Consider the following What can we make of it ? Can we generalise to make a rule ?

19
Indices Higher Mathematics 3 times 4 times 4 3 terms

20
Indices Higher Mathematics m times n times m n terms

21
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – for POWERS you MULTIPLY the indices

22
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? What meaning can we give to

23
Indices Higher Mathematics 3 times Recall division

24
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – anything to the power of 0 is 1

25
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? What meaning can we give to

26
Indices Higher Mathematics 3 times 2 times Recall division

27
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – anything to the power of 1 is itself

28
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? What meaning can we give to

29
Indices Higher Mathematics 3 times 4 times Recall division

30
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices a ‘minus’ index means ‘1 over’ A useful way of remembering this

31
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? What meaning can we give to

32
Indices Higher Mathematics 2 times 5 times Recall division

33
Indices Higher Mathematics m times m +n times Generalising

34
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – minus means 1 over Express in positive index form

35
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? What meaning can we give to

36
Indices Higher Mathematics Recall multiplication ButSo, Hence Thus

37
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? What meaning can we give to

38
Indices Higher Mathematics Recall multiplication and, Hence Thus n times

39
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – fraction denominator gives the root Express in root form

40
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? What meaning can we give to

41
Indices Higher Mathematics Recall powers Thus So,But,

42
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices What can we make of it ? Can we deduce a meaning from what we know so far ? Finally, what meaning can we give to

43
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Remember – fraction denominator gives the root Express in root form Remember – fraction numerator gives the power

44
Indices Higher Mathematics Recall Then and,

45
Indices Higher Mathematics Examples Express in root form Remember – minus means 1 over

46
Indices Higher Mathematics Rules of Indices Multiplying Dividing Powers

47
Indices Higher Mathematics Special Indices Power of 0 Power of 1

48
Indices Higher Mathematics Negative and Fractional Indices Negative Fraction Negative fraction minus means ‘1 over’

49
