Unformatted text preview: where represents the base multiplied by itself times ( times; has factors). 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 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...
