In algebraic equations, exponents can contain variables. They can be solved for by using logarithmic rules for exponents.

It depends on whether you are working with variables. You cannot add terms with variables that have unlike exponents.

You can't. You can only subtract like terms. Like terms must have exactly the same variables and exponents on the variables.

The degree of a monomial is the sum of the variables exponents. Example: 7x^2y^3 ( ^ means raised to the power of) degree= 5

Yes. When you divide one variable with an exponent from another, you subtract the exponents

Sum the exponents.

You add the exponents- x^2*x^6=x^8

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

If the base numbers or variables are the same, you add the exponents.

When adding variables with exponents, you do neither. You only add the exponents if #1 The variables are the same character (such as they are both "a") #2 You are multiplying the variables (NOT ADDING, SUBTRACTING, OR DIVIDING) Using a simple concrete case may make this clearer: 10+2 times 10+3 equals 10+5 ( 100 times 1000 equals 100,000).

You add them.

It means that it has constants and variables that has a form of something like 7x2+2x+5 or something like that. Variables can not be used as exponents though, and exponents have to be whole numbers. Also, variables can not be a denominator.

identical identities

Unlike terms.

You get an expression in two variables which you may or may not be able to simplify.

when two numbers are multiplied together that are exponents you multiply the bases amd add the exponents the relationship would simply be that the product exponents are the sum of the exponents being multiplied in the question

They must be even.

linearity is defined as the situation when all variable exponents are equal to one
