Knowing how to get rid of negative exponents is key to fully simplifying an expression. Get some practice working with negative exponents by watching this tutorial!
When you learn about rule or property, it's best to practice with it. This tutorial takes you through the process of applying product of powers rule to simplify an expression. Check out this tutorial for some great practice!
Being able to use a property or rule can be as important as knowing it. In this tutorial, you'll see how to use the quotient of powers rule to simplify an expression. Take a look!
Got a fraction raised to a power? Learn how to split that exponent and put it in the numerator and denominator of your fraction using the power of a quotient rule. This tutorial shows you how!
Want to simplify a radical whose radicand is not a perfect square? No sweat! Check out this tutorial and see how to write that radicand as its prime factorization. Then, rewrite any duplicate factors using exponents, break up the radical using the product property of square roots, and simplify. To see this process step-by-step, watch this tutorial!
The product property of square roots is really helpful when you're simplifying radicals. This property lets you take a square root of a product of numbers and break up the radical into the product of separate square roots. Check out this tutorial and learn about the product property of square roots!
The quotient property of square roots if very useful when you're trying to take the square root of a fraction. This property allows you to split the square root between the numerator and denominator of the fraction. This tutorial introduces you to the quotient property of square roots. Take a look!
Did you know that another word for 'exponent' is 'power'? To learn the meaning of these words and to see some special cases involving exponents, check out this tutorial!
Taking the square root of a perfect square always gives you an integer. This tutorial shows you how to take the square root of 36. When you finish watching this tutorial, try taking the square root of other perfect squares like 4, 9, 25, and 144.
Working with exponents can be lots of fun, as long as you understand how they work. In this tutorial you'll see how exponents add when you multiply the same number raised to different exponents!
Sometimes you'll see a number with an exponent raised to another exponent, and the first time you see it, you probably think it's a typo! But it's not a typo, it's a real thing, and there's a really nice trick for making it simpler that you'll see in the video.
There's a great trick for raising a product of two number to an exponent, and this tutorial shows you exactly that trick works.
Working with exponents can be lots of fun, as long as you understand how they work. In this tutorial you'll see how exponents add when you divide the same number raised to different exponents!
A lot of people get a little uneasy when they see 0, especially when that 0 is the exponent in some expression. After all, there seem to be so many rules about 0, and so many special cases where you're not allowed to do something. Well it turns out that a zero in the exponent is one of the best things that you can have, because it makes the expression really easy to figure out. Watch this tutorial, and next time you see 0 in the exponent, you'll know exactly what to do!
Do you ever panic when you see a negative number in the exponent of some mathematical expression? Well if you do, then panic no more! This tutorial will help you overcome your fear, and will help you understand what negative exponents actually mean :)
Anytime you square an integer, the result is a perfect square! The numbers 4, 9, 16, and 25 are just a few perfect squares, but there are infinitely more! Check out this tutorial, and then see if you can find some more perfect squares!
You can rewrite an expression with a rational exponent a few different ways. This can come in handy when your solving a problem involving rational exponents. This tutorial shows you how it works! You can even practice with examples!
Exponential form is a quick way to show that a number should be multiplied by itself a certain number of times. In this tutorial, see how to write a repeated multiplication in exponential form!
Did you know that exponents are just a quick way to show repeated multiplication? In this tutorial, see how to expand out a value in exponential form to see what it really represents!
Exponents just indicate repeated multiplication. Watch this tutorial to see how you can evaluate an exponent by first writing it in expanded form. Take a look!
