1
Zero Exponent? Product or quotient of powers with the same base? Simplify Negative Exponents.

2
Any power with a zero exponent simplifies to 1.

3
When raising a product to a power, each factor is raised to the power. When raising a quotient to a power, the numerator and the denominator are both raised to the power. If a power is raised to a power, multiply the exponents. Example

4
(4x -2 ) 3 Next step. 4 3 (x -2 ) 3 64x -6 64 x 6

5
If there is a product of powers with the same base, keep the base and add the exponents. If there is a quotient of powers with the same base, keep the base and subtract the exponents.

6
Simplify all negative exponents by rewriting the power as the reciprocal of the base with the positive exponent. If there is a negative exponent in the numerator of a fraction, move the power to the denominator and change it to a positive exponent. If there is a negative exponent in the denominator of a fraction, move it to the numerator and change it to a positive exponent.
