Sorry I am posting so much! I am just so excited to share my ideas with other people who are researching what I am researching!

Exponent Laws

-----------------

Recall that

(x^a)^b = x^(ab)

(x^a)(x^b)= x^(a+b)

Exponent Law 3

ZERATION exponent LAW (you already know this it's just a different way of looking at it....)

(x)(x^a) = x^(x o a)

Recall that

bth root (x^a) = x^(a/b)

(x^a)/(x^b) = x ^ (a-b)

Exponent Law 6

(x^a)/x = x^(a J x)

There!!! Notice how the pattern isn't only decreasing operations but decreasing combinations of operations. Notice how b is alone in the top and missing in the bottom. Notice how multiplication or division is present in each of the equations. Just thought it was neat!
