Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rule: \[\LARGE \frac{x^a}{x^b} = x^{ab}\] so when we divide two exponential expressions with the same base, you subtract the exponents

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0example \[\LARGE \frac{x^9}{x^4} = x^{94}=x^5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I GOT 1 AND 2. what about the rest?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the rule also allows the base to be a number (instead of a letter) example: \[\LARGE \frac{7^8}{7^3} = 7^{83}=7^5 = 16,807\] notice how I made x = 7 be the base

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Another rule to memorize or write down: \[\Large x^0 = 1\] where x is any number but zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so using that rule gives us... \[\LARGE 4^{2} = \frac{1}{4^2} = \frac{1}{16}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for #7, you will multiply the outer term (4a) by each of the inner terms. Then you add up those products.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0#8 you can use the FOIL rule, but I prefer this visual table method dw:1432857540600:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would fill out the table by multiplying the headers example: 3y times 2y = 6y^2 dw:1432857602213:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do the same for the other table cells then add up each expression in each of the cells (combine like terms if possible)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0notice how the 4y and 9y are like terms, so they combine to 4y + (9y) = 13y
