Exponents and Their Properties Section 5.1

Overview Multiplying Powers with Like Bases Dividing Powers with Like Bases Zero as an Exponent Raising a Power to a Power Raising a Quotient to a Power

Exponents If asked to “simplify” a problem, then write answer as one base to one power, if possible But if you have a both the base and power are numbers, then solve Base Power
