I don't understand, I'm struggling in math and I thought if I get an understanding of what kind of problems I was looking for, it would make things easier.

Reiny,
How 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 ?

Could you describe that law?
the basic laws of exponents work with any exponents, whether whole numbers, integers, rational or irrational.
