Lesson 2 Exponential Notation: Where is the base and is the exponent or power Product Rule for Exponents: When common bases are multiplied, the exponents are added Quotient Rule for Exponents: When common bases are divided, the exponents are subtracted (exponent in numerator minus exponent in denominator) Power Rule for Exponents: ( )When a base is raised to a power and then raised to another power, the exponents are multiplied Product to a Power Rule: ( )( )When a product is raised to a power, the exponent is distributed to each factor
Quotient to a Power Rule: ()()When a quotient is raised to a power, the exponent is distributed to each factor in the numerator and denominator Zero-Exponent Rule:( )Any base taken to the power of zero is 1, except a base of zero; Negative Exponent Rule:( )( )To change the sign of an exponent, take the reciprocal of the base; if a quantity has a negative exponent, take the reciprocal of the entire quantity; keep in mind that the sign of the base DOES NOT change Radical Notation: Where is the radicand, is the index or root and is the radical sign
