Unformatted text preview: If 2 expressions have the same base, then the multiplication of those would be the base and the exponents added. For example: + = + ab ac ab c Power Rule of Exponents: If you have an expression in parenthesis raised to another power, you can multiply the 2 exponents and keep the base. For example: = abc abc Quotient Rule of Exponents: If you have a fraction with a monomial on the top and bottom with the same base, you can simplify by subtracting the denominator’s monomial’s exponent from the numerator’s monomial’s exponent. For example: =abac ab c Here is one expression to simplify – it has it all × a2 a35a2 : … Hint Finish off the paranthesis by simplifying inside...
