Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when we multiply same bases we should `add` exponents \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n=x^{m+n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\huge\rm x^{m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\] flip the fraction to convert negative to positive exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\huge\rm 5^{12}= \frac{ 5^{12} }{ 1 } \] 5 to the 12 power is same as 5^{12} over one now flip the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1442004195527:dw now flip the fraction! when you do that `sign of the exponent would change`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1442004255141:dw now flip this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you flip the fraction sign of the exponent would change! it was negative so when you flip the fraction exponent will become positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2here is an example \[\huge\rm \frac{ 2^{3} }{ 1 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 2^3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no just flip the fraction just like u did before but when you do that `sign` of exponent would change

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @Nnesha here is an example \[\huge\rm \frac{ 2^{3} }{ 1 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 2^3 }\] \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) like in this example it was 2^{3} /1 when i flipped the fraction it become 1/2 to the positive 3 power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ohh so they don't u to convert that to positive exponnet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay what did we get ? remember we multiply same bases we should add exponents

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay reread my comments you really need to pay attention to this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i'll type it again when we multiply same bases we should \(\huge\color{green}{\rm ADD}\) their exponents

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you should `ADD` exponents instead multiplying them
