## anonymous one year ago what is the trick to exponents

1. anonymous

adding multiplying and subtracting how do I know which to do?

2. Nnesha

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

3. Nnesha

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

4. Nnesha

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

thank you so much

6. Nnesha

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