When multiplying terms, you add the exponents. when dividing terms, you subtract exponents. With exponents of exponents, you multiply. For example, 3. (3^2)^3 = 3^2 * 3^2 * 3^2 = 3^6

the reason why x^0 is 1, can be easily seen, if you have worked with exponents yet: x^5 = x*x*x*x*x x^2 = x*x x^/x^2 = (x*x*x*x*x)/(x*x) = x*x*x = x63 = x^(5-2) That is, when you divide powers, you subtract exponents. So, x^5 / x^5 = 1, but it is also x^(5-5) = x^0

MATH
Online "*" is used to indicate multiplication, because "x" is often confused with an unknown. 2.9 * 3 = 8.7 When multiplying exponents, you add the value of the exponents. 10^3 * 10^-3 = 10^0 = 1 Answer = 8.7 or 8.7 *10^0

Algebra: exponents
You may put the exponents in the numerator or denominator. a3= 1/a-3 sometimes teachers have beginning students move them around just for practice.

so keep the base of 5 and add the exponents for the multiplication. that gives you 5^11/5^8 For division, keep the base of 5 and subtract the exponents. What is your final answer?

-5Y^4 * Y^10/15Y^7 * Y^6 When you multiply exponents, you add them -5Y^14/15Y^12 When dividing exponents, you substract from the top and bottom I think the final answer would be -y^2/3
