Exponents

• Exponents are used to express large numbers in shorter form to make them easy to read, understand, compare and operate upon. For example, 10, 000 = 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 = 104.

Laws of Exponents

Multiplying Powers with the Same Base

• For any non-zero integer a and whole number m and n, am × an = am+n

Dividing Powers with the Same Base

• For any non-zero integer a and whole number m and n (m>n), am ÷ an = am-n

Taking Power of a Power

• For any non-zero integer a and whole number m and n, (am)n = amn

Multiplying Powers with the Same Exponents

• For any non-zero integers a and b and whole number m, am × bm = (ab)m

Dividing Powers with the Same Exponents

• For any non-zero integers a and b and whole number m, am ÷ bm = am/bm = (a/b)m

Expressing large numbers in the standard form

• Any number can be expressed as a decimal number between 1.0 and 10.0 (including 1.0) multiplied by a power of 10. Such form of a number is called its standard form or scientific notation. For example: Speed of light in vacuum = 300000000 m/s = 3.0 × 108 m/s.
