To multiply like (with same base) exponential quantities, add the exponents. In the language of algebra the rule is am x an  = am+n

Exponents - RF Cafe

 

AII-1

To divide exponential quantities, subtract the exponents. In the language of algebra the rule is

*Generally used with electrical quantities.

To raise an exponential quantity to a power, multiply the exponents. In the language of algebra

(xm)n  = xmn.

Any number (except zero) raised to the zero power is one. In the language of algebra xO  = 1

Any base with a negative exponent is equal to 1 divided by the base with an equal positive exponent. In the language of algebra x-a  = 1/xa

To raise a product to a power, raise each factor of the product to that power.

 

AII-2

To find the nth root of an exponential quantity, divide the exponent by the index of the root. Thus, the nth root of am = am/n.
