Division rule 3. Power rule 2.2.1 Multiplication Rule Let us start with some examples: 2 2 4 6 2 4 2 4 6 4 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 + × = × × × × × = × = = E5F E555555F 3 7 3 7 10 3 7 3 7 10 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 + × = × × × × × × × × × = × = = E555F E5555555555555F From the two examples we have just done, we can see that to multiply two powers of the same number we just add up the powers. 2.2.2 Division Rule Again let us try some examples: In general : m n m n a a a + × =

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
