There are a number of calculations that involve exponentials one such calculation involves multiples of exponentials with the same base. The method used to solve these problems is to separate the multiples and the exponentials and to independently perform the calculations and to then recombine the results. Example 1: Simplify the following expressions. (The answers are to have only positive exponents). (a) (c) (d) Solution (a): (b) (e) (f) = Separate the terms = = Solution (b): 28 28 = Separate the terms = 63 = Solution (c): Using the multiplication rule 63 = Using the multiplication rule Separate the terms = 90 = 90 = 90 Using the multiplication rule Using the property that Page | 7 Olympic College Topic 9 Exponentials Solution (d): = Separate the terms = 33 = 33 = 33 = Using the multiplication rule Using the property that = Solution (e): = Separate the terms = 72 = 72 = Using the multiplication rule Using the property that = Solution (f): = Separate the terms = 28 = 28 = 28 = Using the multiplication rule Using the property that = Page | 8 Olympic College Topic 9 Exponentials Example 2: Simplify the following expressions.
