The laws of exponents consist of the power rule, product rule, quotient rule, zero rule, rules of one and rules of negative exponents. These tools prove useful for simplifying and manipulating mathematical expressions wi... More »

Indices are a mathematical concept for expressing very large numbers. They are also known as powers or exponents. In the mathematical process of exponentiation, a base number is written alongside a superscript number, wh... More »

Algebra 1 focuses on the manipulation of equations, inequalities, relations and functions, exponents and monomials, and it introduces the concept of polynomials. One of the key skills learned in Algebra 1 is the ability ... More »

The product rule for exponents state that when two numbers share the same base, they can be combined into one number by keeping the base the same and adding the exponents together. All multiplication functions follow thi... More »

The division properties of exponents are: when dealing with like bases, exponents are subtracted when the bases are divided; when an entire quotient is raised to an exponential power, both the numerator and denominator a... More »

The quotient of powers property states that when two powers with the same base are divided, the exponents are subtracted from each other. This is written out in the formula: (a^b)/(a^c)=a^b-c. More »

Rational or fractional exponents are another way of notating that some root of a base number should be taken, without using a radical sign. For instance, 16^1/2 is equivalent to taking the square root of 16, and 27^1/3 i... More »
