    \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n = x^{m+n}\] when you multiply same bases you should add their exponents

    \[\huge\rm (x^\color{red}{m})^\color{green}{n} = x^{ \color{ReD}{m} \times\color{green}{ n}}\] multiply outside exponent by inside exponent of the base

    anything to the 0 power is just equal to 1 \[\large\rm (x)^0 = 1\] \[\large\rm (333)^0 = 1\] \[\large\rm (Nnesha)^0 =1\] (chocolates)^0 = 1

    there are few more anything to the negative power \[\huge\rm x^{-m} = \frac{ 1 }{ m }\]
