Integer Exponents Day 1

Definitions  Base: The term/variable of which is being raised upon  Exponent: The term/variable is raised by a term. AKA Power BASE EXPONENT

Example 1

5 Example 2

6 Example 3

Solve:

Any number raised to the first power is … 3 1 = 87 1 = 528921 1 = Rule : Any number raised to the first power is itself. (a 1 = a)

Any number raised to the power of zero is ONE! 3 0 = 87 0 = 528921 0 = Rule: a 0 = 1

Negative Power Property  Saying goes: NO NEGATIVE POWERS What are the base(s) and the power(s)?

Negative Power Property

Practice 1) (-4) 2 2) 7 3 3) -5 4 4) 10 1 5) 9 5 6) (-2) 0 7) (-2) -1 8) 0 -3 9) 3 -4 10) (¼) 0

Product Rule  Saying goes: BASE, BASE, ADD If the BASES are same, ADD the powers What are the base(s) and the power(s)?

Product of a Power

Quotient Power Property  Saying goes: When dividing an expression with a power, SUBTRACT the powers. They must have the same base in order to subtract. What are the base(s) and the power(s)?

Quotient Power Property

=

Power of a Power  Saying goes: POWER, POWER, MULTIPLY If the POWERS are near each other, MULTIPLY the powers – usually deals with PARENTHESES What are the base(s) and the power(s)?

Power of a Power

Power of a Product  Saying goes: DISTRIBUTE THE POWER TO THE BASES What are the base(s) and the power(s)?

Power of a Product How many bases does this problem have?

Properties of Exponents  Negative Power Property:  Product of a Power:  Power of a Power:  Quotient Power Property:
