Learn the rules for simplifying exponent expressions.

### Exponent properties involving products

VIDEO
14:00 minutes

Gain a deep intuition for these exponent properties: (x^a)( x^b)=x^(a+b) and (xy)^a=(x^a)(y^a) and (x^a)^b=x^(a*b)

### Exponent properties involving quotients (examples)

VIDEO
9:22 minutes

Learn how to simplify expressions like (5^6)/(5^2). Also learn how 1/(a^b) is the same as a^-b. Towards the end of the video, we practice simplifying more complex expressions like (25 * x * y^6)/(20 * y^5 * x^2).

### Using exponent rules to evaluate expressions

PRACTICE PROBLEMS

Practice evaluating expressions by adding, subtracting, or multiplying exponents.

### Exponent properties: products and exponents raised to an exponent

VIDEO
5:58 minutes

Learn two exponent properties: (ab)^c and (a^b)^c. See WHY they work and HOW to use them.
