Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Let’s review the rules for exponents you learned in Algebra 1 :

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Let’s review the rules for exponents you learned in Algebra 1 : - When you multiply like variables you ADD their exponents

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Let’s review the rules for exponents you learned in Algebra 1 : - When you multiply like variables you ADD their exponents - When you divide like variables you SUBTRACT their exponents

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Let’s review the rules for exponents you learned in Algebra 1 : - When you multiply like variables you ADD their exponents - When you divide like variables you SUBTRACT their exponents - When an exponent is raised to another exponent, you MULTIPLY exponents

Let’s review the rules for exponents you learned in Algebra 1 : - When you multiply like variables you ADD their exponents - When you divide like variables you SUBTRACT their exponents - When an exponent is raised to another exponent, you MULTIPLY exponents - When a variable has a negative exponent, you change its position in a fraction and the exponent becomes positive.

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Let’s review the rules for exponents you learned in Algebra 1 : What we are going to do in Pre – Calc is take these rules and combine them into multi – step problems that might have all four rules utilized.

Example # 1 :

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Example # 1 : Since everything is multiplied, we can multiply all integers, and all like variables.

Example # 1 : Example # 2 :

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Example # 1 : Example # 2 : Don’t PANIC !!! The rule for multiplying like variables still applies. Exponents can be algebraic, integers, or fractions

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Example # 1 : Example # 2 : We will still ADD exponents Don’t PANIC !!! The rule for multiplying like variables still applies. Exponents can be algebraic, integers, or fractions

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Example # 1 : Example # 2 : We will still ADD exponents Now just treat the exponent like an algebraic expression where we combine like terms…

Example # 3 : When you have imbedded parentheses and exponents outside, start with the innermost set and work your way “out”.

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
Example # 3 : Evaluate this first, applying the exponent outside to ALL of the terms inside.

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
There are two ways to attack this problem. Apply the division rule using negative exponents. Use the negative exponent rule first, then apply the division rule. Example # 4 :

There are two ways to attack this problem. Apply the division rule using negative exponents. Use the negative exponent rule first, then apply the division rule. Example # 4 :

Algebraic Expressions – Rules for Exponents
There are two ways to attack this problem. Apply the division rule using negative exponents. Use the negative exponent rule first, then apply the division rule. Example # 4 : I applied the negative exponent rule and moved any variable with a negative exponent to the other part of the fraction and made the exponent positive…
