    When multiplying powers with the same base, simply add the exponents. For example,\[3^2 \times 3^4 = 3^6\]

    When dividing powers with the same base, simply subtract the exponents. For example,\[3^2 \div 3^4 = 3^{-2}\]

    Any number raised to the exponent 0 equals 1. For example,\[3^0 = 1\]

    And to change the sign of an exponent, take the reciprocal of the power. For example,\[3^{-2} = \frac{ 1 }{ 3^2 }\]

    That should be everything you need.

    Take the second box on your question. It is a multiplication of powers with the same base. So add the exponents. What do you get?

    Look at the first example I did and apply that to your question.

    It's not difficult, all you need is to be able to add and subtract.

    In the second box, the base is 5. What are the two exponents?

    Good. Add those two exponents together. What do you get?

    Terrific. So\[5^3 \times 5^{-1} = 5^2\]See how it works. Easy as pie.

    Now, I would leave the 3rd box the way it is and simplify the 4th box. Look at my 4th example above. What happens when you take the reciprocal of a power?
