# MULTIPLY EXPONENTS - POWER OF A POWER EQUAL TO BASE POWER PRODUCT OF EXPONENTS EXAMPLES, EXERCISE

RATIONAL EXPONENTS BEFORE MULTIPLY EXPONENTS
if you have not already done so.

It is a prerequisite here.

There, we provided the explanation
for Rational Exponents.

We discussed how we can apply the same
7 Laws and the 2 Rules given for
whole number Exponents can be applied
for Fractional Exponents.

Here, we apply the Laws to solve
problems with emphasis on the law
exponent of a power to some base
= multiply exponents to that base.

### Solved Example 1 of Multiply Exponents

Simplify {(27)2n⁄3 x (8)-n⁄6}⁄{(18)-n⁄2}

Solution to Example 1 of Multiply Exponents:

Let A = {(27)2n⁄3 x (8)-n⁄6}⁄{(18)-n⁄2}
We know
27 = 3 x 3 x3 = 33; 8 = 2 x 2 x 2 = 23; 18 = 2 x 9 = 2 x 3 x 3 = 2 x 32
∴ A = {(33)2n⁄3 x (23)-n⁄6}⁄{(2 x 32)-n⁄2}
We Know
(am)n = amn]
(ab)m = am x bm
Applying these, we get
A = {(33 x 2n⁄3) x (23 x -n⁄6)}⁄{(2-n⁄2) x (32)-n⁄2}
= {(32n) x (2-n⁄2)}⁄{(2-n⁄2) x (32 x -n⁄2)}
= (32n)⁄(3-n) [By cancelling (2-n⁄2) which is in Numerator and denominator]
= (32n - (-n)) = (32n + n) = 33n. Ans.

### Solved Example 2 of Multiply Exponents

Prove that (xaxb)(a + b).(xbxc)(b + c).(xcxa)(c + a) = 1.

Solution to Example 2 of Multiply Exponents:

We know aman = am - n
And this can be applied to fractional Exponents also.
Applying this here, we get
L.H.S. = (xa - b)(a + b).(xb - c)(b + c).(xc - a)(c + a).
We Know
(am)n = amn
And this can be applied to fractional Exponents also.
Applying this here, we get
L.H.S. = {x(a - b)(a + b)}.{x(b - c)(b + c)}.{x(c - a)(c + a)}
We know
(a - b)(a + b) = a2 - b2; (b - c)(b + c) = b2 - c2; (c - a)(c + a) = c2 - a2;
∴ L.H.S. = {x(a2 - b2)}.{x(b2 - c2)}.{x(c2 - a2)}
We Know
am x an = am + n
And this can be applied to fractional Exponents also.
Applying this here, we get
L.H.S. = x{(a2 - b2) + (b2 - c2) + (c2 - a2)}.
= x{(a2 - a2) + (b2 - b2) + (c2 - c2)}.
= x{0 + 0 + 0}. = x0 = 1 = R.H.S. (proved)

### Solved Example 3 of Multiply Exponents

If ax = b, by = c, cz = a, show that xyz = 1.

Solution to Example 3 of Multiply Exponents:

ax = b .........(i); by = c .........(ii); cz = a.........(iii)
Using (iii) in (i), we get
ax = b ⇒ (cz)x = bczx = b [Since (am)n = amn]
Using (ii) here, we get
czx = b ⇒ (by)zx = bbyzx = b
bxyz = b1xyz = 1. (Proved.)

### Solved Example 4 of Multiply Exponents

If (64)x = 1⁄(256)y, show that 3x + 4y = 0.

Solution to Example 4 of Multiply Exponents:

By data (64)x = 1⁄(256)y
We can see that 64 and 256 are powers of 4.
64 = 4 x 4 x 4 = 43; 256 = 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 = 44;
(64)x = 1⁄(256)y ⇒ (64)x = (256)-y ⇒ (43)x = (44)-y
We Know
(am)n = amn
Applying this here, we get
43x = 44 x -y ⇒ 43x = 4-4y
Since the bases are same, the exponents have to be equal.
∴ 3x = -4y ⇒ 3x + 4y = 0. (Proved.)

## Progressive Learning of Math : Multiply Exponents

Recently, I have found a series of math curricula
(Both Hard Copy and Digital Copy) developed by a Lady Teacher
who taught everyone from Pre-K students to doctoral students
and who is a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.

This series is very different and advantageous
over many of the traditional books available.
These give students tools that other books do not.
Other books just give practice.
These teach students “tricks” and new ways to think.

These build a student’s new knowledge of concepts
from their existing knowledge.
These provide many pages of practice that gradually
increases in difficulty and provide constant review.

These also provide teachers and parents with lessons
on how to work with the child on the concepts.

The series is low to reasonably priced and include

Elementary Math curriculum

and

Algebra Curriculum.
