2. We divided: x to the exponent of 5 divided by x to the exponent of 3.

a) Suppose the exponents 5 and 3 were different. Would the subraction method still work? Explain.

b) Suppose the base x was different. Would we get similar results? Explain.


1. x^3 * x^4 so use the base x and add the exponents.
a) yes, because you're multiplying a common base.
b) No, if the bases were different we can't add the exponents.

a) yes, the base is the same
