Examples

Rule 3—Raising a power to a power When raising a power to another power, you keep the base and multiply the exponents

Examples

Rule 4--Negative Exponents  Do not leave any negative exponents in the final answer, to make them positive move from top to bottom or bottom to top (doesn’t matter if the base is negative)
