1 MTH Algebra EXPONENTS, PARENTHESES, AND THE ORDER OF OPERATIONS CHAPTER 1 SECTION 9

2 Learn the Meaning of Exponents General b n b is called the base, n is called the exponent n factors of b (b)(b)(b)(b)….(b) = b n b 4 = (b)(b)(b)(b) or bbbb x 3 = (x)(x)(x) or xxx

3 Learning the Meaning of Exponents Whenever we see a variable or number without an exponent, we always assume that the exponent is 1 An exponent refers only to the number or variable that directly precedes it … unless parentheses are used to indicate otherwise. -x 2 not the same as (-x) 2 (-)(x)(x) (-x)(-x)

4 Learn the Meaning of Exponents is called the base, 2 is called the exponent 2 factors of 3 (3)(3) = is called the base, 3 is called the exponent 3 factors of 5 (5)(5)(5) = 125

5 #17 pg 77) 5 2 “5 squared” (5)(5)5 is the base, 2 is the exponent 25“5 to the second power” 2 factors of 5 #21 pg “7 cubed” (7)(7)(7) “7 to the third power” (49)(7)3 factors of is the base, 3 is the exponent Exp:b 3 = b·b·b “b cubed” Exp:x 4 = x·x·x·x “x to the fourth” Expamples

8 Exponents refer to the number or variable directly preceding it unless it is in parenthesis EXP: -x 2 only the x will be squared (-)(x)(x) “negative x squared” or “the opposite of x squared” EXP: (-x) 2 all will be squared (-x)(-x) “negative x, quantity squared” EXP: -6 2 = (-)(6)(6) = -36 EXP: (-6) 2 = (-6)(-6)= 36 Difference between –x 2 and (-x) 2

9 #30) (-7) 2 even neg. = pos. result (-7)(-7) -49 Exp) (-4) 4 even neg. = pos result (-4)(-4)(-4)(-4) (16)(-4)(-4) (-64)(-4) 256 Examples

12 EXP: (-5) 2 = (-5)(-5) = 25 EXP:-(5) 2 = -(5)(5) = -25 EXP:-2 3 = -(2)(2)(2) = -8 EXP:(-2) 3 = (-2)(-2)(-2) = -8 EXP:-2 4 = -(2)(2)(2)(2) = -16 EXP:(-2) 4 = (-2)(-2)(-2)(-2) = 16 EXP:(-7) 2 = (-7)(-7) = 49 EXP:(-3) 3 = (-3)(-3)(-3) = -27 Difference between –x 2 and (-x) 2

13 Help using your calculator is on page 70 EXP:-10 2 = -(10)(10) = -100 EXP:(-10) 2 = (-10)(-10) = 100 EXP:-4 3 = -(4)(4)(4) = -64 EXP:(-4) 3 = (-4)(-4)(-4) = -64 Calculator

14 Order of Operation 1. Evaluate within grouping symbols { }, [ ], ( ) innermost parenthesis first 2. Evaluate exponents 3. Multiply or Divide from left to right 4. Add or Subtract from left to right Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally – PEMDAS Remember its multiply or divide, add or subtract Parenthesis can be used to change the order of operations or to clarify the order EXP: · 4 = 2 + (3 · 4) = = 14 Learning the Order of Operations

15 Nested Parenthesis is one set inside another Use the innermost parenthesis first. EXP:EXP: Learning the Order of Operations

16 EXP:EXP: Examples

17 EXP:EXP: Examples

18 EXP:EXP: Examples

19 EXP: Examples

20 Write the following statement as mathematical expressions using parentheses and brackets and then evaluate. Multiply 9 by 6, add 7 to this product. Subtract 12 from the sum. Divide this difference by 5. [[(9 * 6) + 7] – 12] ÷ 5 49/5
