Hi Class! Tonight's main focus will be the Law of Exponents. The following will explain how to add, multiply, divide, and raise exponents to exponents. Please take notes on the following video because we will be going over this concept in more detail in class tomorrow. If you are having any issues be sure to let me know, and we will address them in more detail. Thanks! See you in class!

Previously, we discussed exponents and how they work. Recall that xn is equal to x multiplied out n times. For example observe:

22=2 x 2

43=4 x 4 x 4

55= 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5
