Week 1 DQ 1)Rules of exponents: 1. When multiplying numbers with identical base add the exponents to get the result (2^4)* (2^3) = 2^(3+4) = 2^7 2. When dividing number with identical base subtract the exponents to get the result (2^4)/(2^3) = 2^(4-3) = 2^1 = 2 3.To get an exponential expression raised to power simply multiply the powers to get result (2^4)^3 = 2^(4*3) = 2^12 Here is one more: 4. When a exponential expression is moved from numerator to denominator or vice versa then  sign of exponent changes (2^4) = 1/(2^(-4)) 2)  How is dividing a polynomial by a binomial similar to or different from the long division you  learned in elementary school? Can understanding how to do one kind of division help you with  understanding the other kind? What are some examples from real life in which you might use  polynomial division? Polynomial division is actually quite similar to the method of long division that I was taught back
