37 3 Indices and Standard Form 3.1 Index Notation Here we revise the use of index notation. You will already be familiar with the notation for squares and cubes a a a a a a a 2 3 = × = × × , and this is generalised by defining: a a a a n = × × × ... 1 2 44 3 44 n of these Example 1 Calculate the value of: (a) 5 2 (b) 2 5 (c) 3 3 (d) 10 4 Solution (a) 5 2 = 5 5 × = 25 (b) 2 5 = 2 2 2 2 2 × × × × = 32 (c) 3 3 = 3 3 3 × × = 27 (d) 10 4 = 10 10 10 10 × × × = 10 000 Example 2 Copy each of the following statements and fill in the missing number or numbers:

(a) Without using a calculator, write down the values of k and m. 64 8 4 2 2 = = = k m (b) Complete the following: 2 15 = 32 768 2 14 = (KS3/99Ma/Tier 5-7/P1) 3.2 Laws of Indices There are three rules that should be used when working with indices: When m and n are positive integers, 1. a a a m n m n × = + 2. a a a m n m n ÷ = - or a a a m n m n = - m n ( 29 3. a a m n m n ( 29 = × These three results are logical consequences of the definition of a n , but really need a formal proof. You can 'verify' them with particular examples as below, but this is not a proof: 2 2 7 3 × = 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 × × × × × × ( 29 × × × ( 29 = 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 × × × × × × × × × = 2 10 (here m n m n = = + = 7 3 10 , and ) 3.1
