Let a be any real number and m and n be integers, Then: = Let a and b be real numbers and n be an integer, Then: = Let a be any real number and n be an integer, Then: = Note: a ≠ 0 Note: b ≠ 0 = and Note: a ≠ 0

* Why is a equal to 1? 0 5 5 2 2 Simplify 25 Simplify 1 5 5 2 2 Quotient of powers property 5 2 – 2 Simplify 5 0 1 Zero exponent property The zero exponent property is a result of the quotient of powers property. For Quotient of powers property to work, we derive the zero exponent property for this special case.
