4 Definition of Zero and Negative Exponents Algebra Example

5 Use definition of zero and negative exponents EXAMPLE 1 a. 3 – 2 Definition of negative exponents 1 9 = Evaluate exponent. b. (–7) 0 Definition of zero exponent = = 1

6 Use definition of zero and negative exponents EXAMPLE 1 = 25 Simplify by multiplying numerator and denominator by 25. d. 0 – 5 a – n is defined only for a nonzero number a (Undefined) = = –2 1 c. Definition of negative exponents = Evaluate exponent.

7 GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Evaluate the expression = = 2. (–8) – –3 = 8 4. (–1 ) 0 = 1

8 Properties of Exponents Product of powers propertyProduct of powers property Power of a power propertyPower of a power property Power of a product propertyPower of a product property Quotient of powers propertyQuotient of powers property Power of a quotient propertyPower of a quotient property Let a and b be real numbers, and let m and n be integers.

9 EXAMPLE 2 Evaluate exponential expressions a. 6 – Product of a power property = 6 0 Add exponents. = 1 Definition of zero exponent = 6 – 4 + 4

10 EXAMPLE 2 Evaluate exponential expressions = Evaluate power. c. 1 3 – 4 Definition of negative exponents Evaluate power. = 81 = 3 4 Power of a power property = 4 – 4 Multiply exponents. Definition of negative exponents b. (4 – 2 ) = 4 = 4 – 2 ∙ 2

11 EXAMPLE 2 Evaluate exponential expressions = Evaluate power. d. 5 – Quotient of powers property = 5 – 3 Subtract exponents = Definition of negative exponents = 5 – 1 – 2

12 GUIDED PRACTICE for Example – 3 = 64 Evaluate the expression. 6. (5 – 3 ) – 1 = (– 3 ) (– 3 ) – 5 5 = – =

13 EXAMPLE 3 Use properties of exponents Simplify the expression. Write your answer using only positive exponents. a. (2xy –5 ) 3 = 2 3 x 3 (y –5 ) 3 = 8 x 3 y –15 = y 15 8x38x3 Power of a product property Power of a power property Definition of negative exponents

14 EXAMPLE 3 Use properties of exponents y5y5 (2x) 2 (–4x 2 y 2 ) = (2x) –2 y 5 –4x 2 y 2 b. y5y5 (4x) 2 (–4x 2 y 2 ) = y5y5 –16x 4 y 2 = y3y3 16x 4 – = Power of a product property Definition of negative exponents Product of powers property Quotient of powers property

15 EXAMPLE 4 Standardized Test Practice The order of magnitude of the mass of a polyphemus moth larva when it hatches is gram. During the first 56 days of its life, the moth larva can eat about 10 5 times its own mass in food. About how many grams of food can the moth larva eat during its first 56 days ? A 10 –15 gram B gram C 100 grams D 10,000,000 grams

16 SOLUTION EXAMPLE 4 Standardized Test Practice To find the amount of food the moth larva can eat in the first 56 days of its life, multiply its original mass, 10 – 3, by –3 The moth larva can eat about 100 grams of food in the first 56 days of its life. ANSWER The correct answer is C. A B C D = 10 2 = 100 = (–3)

17 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 3 and 4 9x3y9x3y 3xy – 3 9. Simplify the expression. Write your answer using only positive exponents. 1 3x2y43x2y4 ANSWER 10. SCIENCE The order of magnitude of the mass of a proton is 10 4 times greater than the order of magnitude of the mass of an electron, which is 10 –27 gram. Find the order of magnitude of the mass of a proton. ANSWER 10 –23 g
