Algebra 2: Section 6.1 Properties of Exponents

Product of Powers –(when multiplying like bases, add exponents) Power of a Power –(when taking an exponent to a power, multiply the exponents)

Properties of Exponents Power of a Product –(distribute) Negative Exponent –(flip to opposite side)

Properties of Exponents Zero Exponent –(anything taken to the zero power is 1) Quotient of Powers –(when dividing like bases, subtract exponents)

Properties of Exponents Power of a Quotient –(distribute)

Rules for Simplifying Exponential Expressions NO negative exponents Simplify all numbers taken to a power Variables go in alphabetic order Only one occurrence of each variable in a single term
