None. Different words for the same thing.

All the powers and exponents of 1 are 1.The powers and exponents of any of the other numbers up to 10 are equivalent to the all the positive numbers - rational and irrational.

This is one of the laws of exponents, which states that xa * xb = x(a+b) The base is x, and the two powers (or exponents) are a and b.

when you multiply powers with the same base.

They are called powers

i dont know i am asking you

To multiply powers with the same base, you add the exponents. For example, 10^2 x 10^3 = 10^5. Similarly, to divide powers with the same base, you subtract the exponents. For example, 10^3 / 10^5 = 10^(-2).

That means that you are supposed to add them.Multiplying the same variable raised to different powers is equivalent to adding the exponents. For example, 10^5 x 10^3 = 10^(5+3) = 10^8. (Using "^" for powers.)

If you are multiplying powers of the same base (like 24 times 211), yes, you add the exponents.

You can have an infinite number of different exponents on a base number, you would then have an infinite amount of different numbers.

Exponents are used in many different contexts and for different, though related, reasons. Exponents are used in scientific notation to represent very large and very small numbers. The main purpose it to strip the number of unnecessary detail and to reduce the risk of errors. Exponents are used in algebra and calculus to deal with exponential or power functions. Many laws in physics, for example, involve powers (positive, negative or fractional) of basic measures. Calculations based on these laws are simper if exponents are used.

Numbers expressed using exponents are called powers. When writing a number expressed as an exponent, the number is called the base.

It means the number form of the exponent.

powers, or exponent

Powers of their exponents

The Addition Property of Exponents. To multiply powers with the same base, add the exponents. e.g. 34 x 37 = 311, x2x3 = x5, and (3x2yz3)(2x5y2z) = 6x7y3z4.

The rule is that you multiply the exponents. So if I have 2 squared and I want to raise it to the third power, you multiply the 2x3=6. When you multiply powers you add the exponents. When you raise exponents to a power you multiply. This works for rational exponents which can be used to represent roots as well.

Powers. 2 to the power of 4 = 16. "to the power of 4) is the the exponent.

Because exponent is the same as power.

You do not. The exponent is only subtracted in division.

I presume you mean you are multiplying two powers of the same base, where both exponents are negative. Regardless of the signs of the exponents, you algebraically add the exponents. For example, 2-3 times 2-4 is 2-7; 35 times 3-8 is 3-3.

the answer is simple you can not
