Rule one is the "Product rule for exponents" this rule states,
that when multiplying
two powers that have the same base, you can add the exponents. It’s a short cut.
2. Give a complete explanation for rule two, the "Quotient Rule for Exponents" this
rule says that,
to divide two exponents with the same base, you keep the base and
subtract the powers. This is similar to reducing fractions. When you subtract the
powers put the answer in the numerator or denominator depending on where the
higher power was located.
3. Give a complete explanation for the "Zero Exponent Rule"
, any real number, except
0, raised to the zero power equals 1. But 0 with the power of 0 is undefined
basically says that any base with an exponent of zero is equal to one.
