• What is the power rule for exponents?
• How do you simplify (x^3)^4?
• Why do you multiply exponents when a variable to an exponent is raised to an exponent?
• Why does (x^3)^4 equal x^12 and not x^7?
• How can you simplify (a^12)^10?
• How can you evaluate or simplify (6^3)^8?
• How do you simplify (2x^3/m^2)^4?
• How can you simplify (-5x^3n/m^8)^2?
• How do you simplify complicated expressions like -4x^5m(3x^2m)^2/(2x)^3 using rules of exponents?
• How would you simplify (-7)^22/(-7)^20?
• What is the power of a product rule for exponents?
• What is the power of a quotient rule for exponents?
