Use multiplication properties of exponents to evaluate and simplify expressions. Objective

You have seen that exponential expressions are useful when writing very small or very large numbers. To perform operations on these numbers, you can use properties of exponents. You can also use these properties to simplify your answer.In this lesson, you will learn some properties that will help you simplify exponential expressions containing multiplication.

Products of powers with the same base can be found by writing each power as a repeated multiplication.Notice the relationship between the exponents in the factors and the exponents in the product 5 + 2 = 7.

Simplify.Example 1: Finding Products of PowersA.Since the powers have the same base, keep the base and add the exponents.B.Group powers with the same base together.Add the exponents of powers with the same base.

Simplify.Example 1: Finding Products of PowersC.D.Group powers with the same base together.Add the exponents of powers with the same base.Group the positive exponents and add since they have the same baseAdd the like bases.

Check It Out! Example 1 a. Simplify.Since the powers have the same base, keep the base and add the exponents.b. Group powers with the same base together.Add the exponents of powers with the same base.

Check It Out! Example 1 Simplify.c.Group powers with the same base together.Add.

Check It Out! Example 1 Simplify.d.Group the first two and second two terms.Divide the first group and add the second group. Multiply.

Example 2: Astronomy ApplicationLight from the Sun travels at about miles per second. It takes about 15,000 seconds for the light to reach Neptune. Find the approximate distance from the Sun to Neptune. Write your answer in scientific notation. Write 15,000 in scientific notation.Use the Commutative and Associative Properties to group.Multiply within each group.

Check It Out! Example 2 distance = rate timeWrite 3,600 in scientific notation.Multiply within each group.Use the Commutative and Associative Properties to group.

To find a power of a power, you can use the meaning of exponents.

Simplify.Example 3: Finding Powers of PowersUse the Power of a Power Property.Simplify.1Use the Power of a Power Property.Zero multiplied by any number is zeroAny number raised to the zero power is 1.

Simplify.Example 3: Finding Powers of PowersUse the Power of a Power Property.Simplify the exponent of the first term.Since the powers have the same base, add the exponents.Write with a positive exponent.C.

Check It Out! Example 3 Simplify.Use the Power of a Power Property.Simplify.1Use the Power of a Power Property.Zero multiplied by any number is zero.Any number raised to the zero power is 1.

Check It Out! Example 3c Simplify.Use the Power of a Power Property.Simplify the exponents of the two terms.Since the powers have the same base, add the exponents.c.

Powers of products can be found by using the meaning of an exponent.

Example 4: Finding Powers of ProductsSimplify.Use the Power of a Product Property.Simplify.Use the Power of a Product Property.Simplify.A.B.

Example 4: Finding Powers of ProductsSimplify.Use the Power of a Product Property.Use the Power of a Product Property.Simplify.C.

Check It Out! Example 4 Simplify.Use the Power of a Product Property.Simplify.Use the Power of a Product Property.Use the Power of a Product Property.Simplify.

Check It Out! Example 4Simplify.Use the Power of a Product Property.Use the Power of a Product Property.Combine like terms.Write with a positive exponent.c.
