**Reiny**, Monday, April 28, 2008 at 8:57amHow about x^3 * x^4 = x^7

Can you not describe the rule I used by considering the meaning of powers such as x^3 ?

how about (x^{3})^{4}= x^{12}?

Could you describe that law?

the basic laws of exponents work with any exponents, whether whole numbers, integers, rational or irrational.
