OBJECTIVE: The students will simplify expressions by using the laws of exponents.

2
**3x3 2x2x2x2x2x2 10x10x10 5x5x5 1x1x1x1x1x1x1x1 Write in**

exponential form 3x3 2x2x2x2x2x2 10x10x10 5x5x5 1x1x1x1x1x1x1x1

3
**HISTORY of the word EXPONENT.**

The term EXPONENT was introduced by Michael Stifel ( ) in 1544 in Arithmetica integra.

4
**An exponent is simply shorthand for multiplying that number of identical factors.**

5
**So 4³ is the same as (4)(4)(4), three identical factors of 4**

So 4³ is the same as (4)(4)(4), three identical factors of 4. And x³ is just three factors of x, (x)(x)(x).

6
**Exponent is the power in an expression.**

9
**7 Laws of Exponents #1 PRODUCT LAW**

To Multiply LIKE Bases… …Copy the Base, Add Exponents

10
**Product Law or Product Rule**

11
**7 Laws of Exponents #2 QUOTIENT LAW**

To Divide LIKE Bases… …Subtract Exponents a4

12
**Quotient Law or Quotient Rule:**

13
**7 Laws of Exponents #3 EXPONENT of EXPONENT LAW**

To Raise a Power to a Power… …Multiply Exponents a12

14
**Exponent of Exponent Law or Exponential Rule:**

15
**7 Laws of Exponents #4 Raising a product to a power**

To Raise a QUANTITY to a Power, raise EACH Factor to that Power. (-3ab)2= 9a2b2

16
**7 Laws of Exponents #5 Raising a quotient or a fraction to a power**

To Raise a FRACTION to a Power, raise BOTH Numerator & Denominator to that power. a4 b4

18
**7 Laws of Exponents #6 NEGATIVE EXPONENT LAW**

Negative Exponents …Reciprocal with a Positive Exponent 1 ___ a3

19
**#6: Negative Law of Exponents: If the base is powered by the**

negative exponent, then the base becomes reciprocal with the positive exponent.

20
**Any nonzero number raised to the ZERO Power = ONE**

7 Laws of Exponents #7 Any nonzero number raised to the ZERO Power = ONE 1 1 1

21
The Laws of Exponents: #7: Zero Law of Exponents: Any base powered by zero exponent equals one
