DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY AND POWER PROPERTIES You Control the Power!

Distributive Property Distribute a monomial over any polynomial: Example: 2x( 5x 3 + 7x 2 - 3x) = ? Answer: 10x 4 + 14x 3 - 6x 2 Next slide: What if the first term is a binomial? Then repeat the process!

Distributive Property If the first expression has more than one term simply distribute each term through the entire second parentheses and then combine like terms: Example: (2x – 6)( 5x 3 + 7x 2 - 3x) = ? Answer: 10x 4 + 14x 3 - 6x 2 - 30x 3 - 42x 2 + 18x 10x 4 - 16x 3 - 48x 2 + 18x

Distributive Property You try this one. Click to check your answer. Example: (6a – 5)( 2a 3 - 3a 2 - a) = ? Answer: 12a 4 – 18a 3 – 6a 2 – 10a 3 + 15a 2 + 5a 12a 4 – 28a 3 + 9a 2 + 5a

Product of Powers Property When multiplying terms with the same base  add the exponents Example: x 3 x 5 = x 8 When in doubt, stretch it out: x 3 x 5  xxx xxxxx

Quotient of Powers Property When dividing powers with the same base  subtract the exponents (This has the same effect as cancelling.) Example: When in doubt, stretch it out:

Power of a Power Property When applying an exponent to an exponent  multiply the exponents Example: ( x 3 ) 5 = x 15 When in doubt, stretch it out: ( x 3 ) 5  ( x 3 ) ( x 3 ) ( x 3 ) ( x 3 ) ( x 3 )  xxx xxx xxx xxx xxx

Power of a Product Property When an exponent is applied outside a parenthetical product, it applies to each factor individually (Be careful not to call this distributive!) Example: When in doubt, stretch it out:

Power of a Quotient Property When an exponent is applied outside a quotient, it applies to each part individually Example: When in doubt, stretch it out:

Zero Power Property Any non-zero base to the zero power is equal to 1 Examples: x 0 = 1 or 56 0 = 1 Why should this be true? Quotient of Powers Property is one easy explanation.

Zero Product Property If two factors have a product of zero, then one of those factors must equal zero. Example: If xy = 0, then x = 0 or y = 0. Why should this be true? How can you multiply two numbers and get zero for an answer?

Negative Power Property A negative power in the numerator, gets moved to the denominator. Examples: Why should this be true? Quotient of Powers Property is one easy explanation.
