Describe two laws of exponents and provide an example illustrating each law.
Law 1 - Multiplication Exponents may be added if the bases remain the same.
For example:
x^5 * x ^3 =x ^+3 =8
Law 2 - Division - Exponents can be subtracted if the bases remain the same.
For example:
x^4 / x^2 = x^4-2 =x^2
Explain how to simplify your expression. How do the laws work with rational
exponents?
To my understading the laws work the same way.
Provide the class with a third expression to simplify that includes rational
(fractional) exponents.
3^1/4 x 3^1/8
