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
34=3 x 3 x 3 x 3
43=4 x 4 x 4
55= 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5
Here is the tutorial explaining the law of exponents. It is important that you understand these concepts for future lessons.
This video goes over some of the topics we have already gone over. It also introduces what we will be learning next, which is negative exponents! It can be used as a helpful tool to remember all the rules, and its actually really catchy! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Here is a helpful list of the Laws of Exponents.
