WHEN MULTIPLYING LIKE BASES, YOU ADD THE EXPONENTS FOR EXAMPLE: NOW YOU TRY:
WHEN RAISING A POWER TO A POWER, YOU MULTIPLY THE EXPONENTS FOR EXAMPLE: NOW YOU TRY:
ANY INTEGER RAISED TO NEGATIVE ONE IS THE RECIPROCAL OF THAT INTEGER. FOR EXAMPLE: NOW YOU TRY:
Any fraction raised to negative one is the reciprocal of that fraction. FOR EXAMPLE: NOW YOU TRY:
WHEN DIVIDING LIKE BASES, YOU SUBTRACT THE EXPONENTS. FOR EXAMPLE: NOW YOU TRY:
ANY NUMBER RAISED TO THE FIRST POWER IS ITSELF. FOR EXAMPLE: NOW YOU TRY:
ANY NUMBER RAISED TO THE ZERO POWER IS ONE. FOR EXAMPLE: NOW YOU TRY:
HOW DO WE GET ANY NUMBER RAISED TO THE ZERO POWER EQUAL TO ONE? can be written as Working backward-you subtract the exponents when you are dividing like bases. Then any number divided by itself will give you ONE!!!
Radical Expressions Finding a root of a number is the inverse operation of raising a number to a power. This symbol is the radical or the radical sign index radical sign radicand The expression under the radical sign is the radicand. The index defines the root to be taken.
How would we simplify this expression? What does the fraction exponent do to the number? The number can be written as a Radical expression, with an index of the denominator.
