Lesson Objective

This lesson shows you the basics behind the next three exponent laws. You'll learn how
these laws are actually formulated...

About This Lesson

This lesson is a continuation from the lesson Exponent Laws - Part 1.

The next three laws that you are going to learn can be derived from the first three laws shown in Part 1. So, the ideas behind these laws are not completely new.

Again, it is important for you to understand these laws before using them. This helps to minimize mistakes.

Tip #1

6a

= 18 x a

= 18 x a

= 18a

Tip #2

6a

= 2a

= 2a

= 2a

Tip #3

2(a

= 2a

Tip #4

You may come across terms
like **a**^{1} or **2**^{1}.
These terms simply mean
that:

**a**^{1}
= **a**

**2**^{1} = **2**

We can explain them using the following observation:

2^{3} = 2 x 2 x 2

2^{2} = 2 x 2

Therefore:**2**^{1} = 2

We can explain them using the following observation:

2

2

Therefore:
