1 ALGEBRA 1B UNIT 8 Multiplication Property of Exponents DAY 2
x 3 x x x = exponent base BASE -- The number or variable that is multiplied by itself the number of times = to exponent. POWER / EXPONENT -- The superscript of the base that represents the number of times the base is multiplied by itself. FACTOR -- One of the numbers / variables / expressions that are multiplied together. EXPONENTIAL FORM – Written in the form of a base and power EXPONENTIAL FUNCTION – A function whose exponent involves at least one variable.
Example 1: EXPONENTIAL FORM SIMPLIFIED FORM REMEMBER – An odd number of negatives gives you a negative answer and an even number of negatives gives you a positive answer
Summary Given, will the simplified answer be positive or negative, why? Given the answer will be_________, because_____________________ What does the exponent/power represent? The exponent represents________________ In example #4 what is the first thing you do to start solving the problem? In example #4 the first thing you do is______
