Define exponents

Exponents refers how many the number is to be multiplied itself.
Example: 3^3 = 3 x 3 x 3 

What if exponent is 0? example 3^0

3^0 = 1


What if exponent is negative?
example 3^3 
3^3 = 1 / 3^3


What if exponent is fraction?
example 3^4/3 
3^4/3 = 3 power to 4 and then square root of 3


Law of Exponents
a^n x a^m 
=
a^(n + m) 

Law of Exponents
(a x b)^3 
=
a^3 x b^3 

Law of Exponents
(a^m)^n 
=
(a)^(m x n) 

Law of Exponents
(a^n / b^n) 
=
(a / b)^n 

Law of Exponents
(a^m) / (a^n) 
=
a^ (mn) 

How to multiply two factors eg. (3x^2 + 4xy)x(5x + 3y^4)

=
3x^2 ( 5x + 3y^4)+ 4xy (5x + 3y^4) or 5x (3x^2 + 4xy) + 3y^4 (3x^2 + 4xy) 

What is factoring?

Required to look for the common factors to each equation.
