§ 1.6 Properties of Integral Exponents

Blitzer, Algebra for College Students, 6e – Slide #2 Section 1.6 Properties of Exponents Exponent Rules Product Rule Quotient Rule When multiplying exponential expressions with the same base, add the exponents. When dividing exponential expressions with the same nonzero base, subtract the exponent in the denominator from the exponent in the numerator.
