Jan.12 Product Law

Discover Exponent Law

Part : 1
example: 4^3 + 3^4 = 145
4x4x4 + 3x3x3x3 =
64 + 81=
145

Product Law - To mutiply powers with the same base add the exponent.

If you are ever unsure of the law - STOP! Write the question in expanded form and then look for the PATTERN

What about showing a couple of examples of how to prove the product law? You showed how to add powers using order of operations, but did not show any examples of multiplying powers with like bases. Could you please add a little bit more info? Thanks
