**6.1 Properties of Exponents**

2/4/2013

2
**Power, Base and Exponent:**

73 Exponent: is the number that tells you how many times the base is multiplied to itself. In this example 73 means 7•7•7

3
**In general: am•an = am+n**

Product of Powers: Ex. 32 • 35 = 3•3•3•3•3•3•3 = 37 = 32+5 In general: am•an = am+n

4
**In general: (am)n = am•n**

Power of a Power: Ex. (23 )2 = (23 )• (23 ) =(2•2•2)•(2•2•2) = 26 = 23•2 In general: (am)n = am•n

5
**In general: (a •b)m =a m•b m**

Power of a Product: Ex. (4•3 )3 = (4•3 )• (4•3 ) • (4•3 ) =(4•4•4)•(3•3•3) = 4 3 •3 3 In general: (a •b)m =a m•b m

6
**In general: a0 = 1 Zero Exponent 50 = 1 40 = 1 30 = 1 ÷5 ÷5 ÷5 ÷4 ÷4**

÷3 ÷3 ÷3 In general: a0 = 1 Any base raised to a 0 power equals 1.

7
**Exponential Form Fraction Form**

32 9 31 3 30 1 = =

8
**Ex. 5-2 Ex. In general: Negative Exponent**

Negative exponent MOVES power. If the power with a negative exponent is in the numerator, the power moves to the denominator and exponent becomes positive. If the power with a negative exponent is in the denominator, the power moves to the numerator and exponent becomes positive.

9
Quotient of Powers Ex. In general:

10
Power of a Quotient Ex. In general:

11
**Example 1 ( ) 8 2 – )4 = ( ) 8 4 2 – + = ( ) 4 2 – 1 ( )4 2 – = = 16 1**

Evaluate Expressions with Negative Exponents ( ) 8 2 – )4 Product of powers property = ( ) 2 – + = ( ) 4 2 – Simplify exponent. 1 ( )4 2 – = Negative exponent property = 16 1 Evaluate power.

12
**Example 2 33 35 2 Evaluate . 33 35 2 = ( )2 32 = 34 = 81**

Evaluate Quotients with Exponents 33 35 2 Evaluate Quotient of powers property 33 35 2 = ( )2 32 = 34 Power of a power property = 81 Evaluate power. 12

**Example 3 a. y x – 3 2 x 2 ( )2 y – 3 = = x 2 y – 3 2 • = x 2 y – 6 =**

Simplify Algebraic Expressions a. y x – 3 2 Power of a quotient property x 2 ( )2 y – 3 = = x 2 y – 3 2 • Power of a power property = x 2 y – 6 Simplify exponent. = x 2y 6 Negative exponent property

15
**Example 3 ( )2 5y – 3 y 5y b. = ( )2 y – 3 y 5y 52 = 25y y 5y – 3 2 •**

Simplify Algebraic Expressions ( )2 5y – 3 y 5y b. = ( )2 y – 3 y 5y 52 Power of a product property = 25y y 5y – 3 2 • Power of a power property = 25y y 5y – 6 Simplify exponent. = 25y – + Product of powers property = 25y 0 Simplify exponent. = 25 Zero exponent property 15

16
**Example 3 c. x 5y 2 – x 3y 6 = x – 3 5 y 6 ( 2) = x 2y 8 – = y 8 x 2**

Simplify Algebraic Expressions c. x 5y 2 – x 3y 6 = x – y 6 ( 2) Quotient of powers property = x 2y 8 – Simplify exponent. = y 8 x 2 Negative exponent property 16
