**Product Rule for Exponents**

When multiplying expressions with the same base, we keep the base and add the exponents. Example: Multiply each expression. a.)32 · 3 = 33 = b.) 24 · 22 = 26 = 64 c.) x · x4 = x5 d.) x3 · x6 = x9 e.) y4 · y7 = y11

5
**Quotient Rule for Exponents**

Example: Divide each expression. a.) b.)

6
**Zero Exponent Rule x0 = 1, x 0 Example: Simplify each expression.**

b.) x0 = 1 c.) (3x)0 = 1

7
**Power Rule for Exponents**

(xm)n = xmn Example: Simplify each expression. a.) (x3)5 = x15 b.) (34)2 = 38 c.) (y5)7 = y35

8
**Power of a Product Rule (xy) n = xnyn Example:**

Simplify the expression. a.) (a2b3) 4 = a8b12

9
**Power of a Quotient Rule**

Example: Simplify each expression. a.) b.)
