 # Rules or Laws of Indices

Video lessons with examples and solutions to help GCSE Maths students learn about the rules or laws of indices.

What are the Law of Indices?
$\begin{array}{l}{x^0} = 1\\{x^m} \times {x^n} = {x^{m + n}}\\\frac{{{x^m}}}{{{x^n}}} = {x^{m - n}}\\{\left( {{x^m}} \right)^n} = {x^{mn}}\\{x^{ - m}} = \frac{1}{{{x^m}}}\\{x^{\frac{m}{n}}} = \sqrt[n]{{{x^m}}} = {\left( {\sqrt[n]{x}} \right)^m}\end{array}$
