Describe two laws of exponents and provide an example illustrating each law. Explain how to simplify your expression. How do the laws work with rational exponents? Provide the class with a third expression to simplify that includes rational (fractional) exponents.

  • algebra -

    Laws of exponents:
    xa*xb = xa+b
    xa/xb = xa-b
    (xa)b = xab
    x-a = 1/xa
    x1/a = ath root of x

    Some or all of these laws must have been discussed in class. Feel free to create the example and post here for discussions if you wish.
