Examples, solutions, videos, worksheets, stories and songs to help Grade 7 students learn about exponential rules.
In this lesson, we will learn five exponential rules and how to apply them.
Some of the rules of exponent are:
when we multiply two powers that have the same base, add the exponents.
raise a power to a power, multiply the exponents. (32
when we divide two powers with the same base, we subtract the exponents. 36
any nonzero number raised to the power of zero equals 1. 540
any nonzero number raised to a negative power equals its reciprocal raised to the opposite positive power.
The following diagram shows the exponential rules for product rule, power rule, quotient rule, zero rule, and negative rule. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions for the exponential rules.
