5. anonymous

6. anonymous

7. skullpatrol

What punctuation mark must EVERY question have?

8. anonymous

The question is "Using complete sentences, explain the steps in simplifying the expression of each student and identify who is correct"

9. skullpatrol

That is a much better question :)

10. anonymous

I am sorry , I forgot to snip the actual question :P

11. skullpatrol

Ok, so you need to know your "rules of exponents"

12. anonymous

I wish I knew those rules .. :c

13. skullpatrol

$$\huge a^m*a^n=a^{m+n}$$

14. skullpatrol

$$\text{To multiply two powers having the same base, you add the exponents.}$$

15. skullpatrol

$\huge \sqrt[n]{a}=a^{\frac{1}{n}}$

16. skullpatrol

$$\huge (a^m)^n=a^{mn}$$ To find a power of a power, you multipy the exponents.

@LaynaMae Hi :)

23. skullpatrol

$$\huge (ab)^m=a^mb^m$$To find the power of a product, you find the power of each factor and then multiply.
