Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 4-3 Properties of Exponents California Standards NS2.3 Understand negative whole- number exponents. Multiply and divide expressions involving exponents with a common base. NS2.1 Multiply, divide, and simplify rational numbers by using exponent rules.

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 4-3 Properties of Exponents The following suggests a rule for multiplying powers with the same base. 2 4 2 2 = (2 2 2 2) (2 2) = 2 6 a 3 a 2 = (a a a) (a a) = a 5 Notice that the sum of the exponents in each expression equals the exponent in the answer: 4 + 2 = 6 and 3 + 2 = 5.
