##### Multiplying Exponents Made Easy

Multiplying exponents is simple with the \textbf{product of powers rule}: if two terms have the same base, add their exponents. Product of Powers Rule If two expressions share the same base, we add the exponents: \[\begin{align*} a^m \cdot a^n = a^{m+n} \end{align*}\] Example: \[\begin{align*} x^2 \cdot x^5 = x^{2+5} = x^7 \end{align*}\] Why It Works…
