Multiplication Properties of Exponents
ALGEBRA 1 LESSON 8-3 Rewrite each expression using each base only once. Add exponents of powers with the same base. 73 + 2 = a. 73 • 72 = 75 Simplify the sum of the exponents. Think of – 2 as (–2) to add the exponents. – 2 = b. 44 • 41 • 4–2 = 43 Simplify the sum of the exponents. Add exponents of powers with the same base. 68 + (–8) = c. 68 • 6–8 = 60 Simplify the sum of the exponents. Use the definition of zero as an exponent. = 1 8-3

You try: 53 · 56 59 24 · 2 -3 21

ALGEBRA 1 LESSON 8-3 Simplify each expression. a. a 2 • b –4 • a 5 Commutative Property of Multiplication a 2 • a 5 • b –4 = = a • b –4 Add exponents of powers with the same base. Simplify. a 7 b 4 = Commutative and Associative Properties of Multiplication (2 • 3 • 4)(p 3)(q • q 4) = b. 2q • 3p3 • 4q4 = 24(p 3)(q 1 • q 4) Multiply the coefficients. Write q as q 1. = 24(p 3)(q 1 + 4) Add exponents of powers with the same base. = 24p 3q 5 Simplify. 8-3

You try: 2y3 · 7x2 · 2y4 28 · x2 · y7
