- Indices Rules
- a^m × a^n = a^(m+n)
- times: add the powers

- a^m ÷ a^n = a^(m-n)
- Divide: subtract the powers
- Only when base number is the same
- a^m × a^n = a^(m+n)
- times: add the powers

- Divide: subtract the powers

- a^m × a^n = a^(m+n)

- (a^m)^n = a^mn
- When raising a power to a power: times the powers

- a^0 = 1
- a^1=a

- a^(?m) =
1/a^m
- When raising a number to a negative power: the reciprocal of the number to the power of the index.

- a^(p/q)=(q?a)^p
- Raising a number to a fraction: the denominator becomes the "root" and the numerator becomes the "power"
- a^(1/q) = q?a
