The exponents are added.

you do not do anything when you add numbers with exponents. you just figure out the answer. it is only if you multiply numbers with exponents, where you add the exponents..

Fractional exponents follow the same rules as integral exponents. Integral exponents are numbers raised to an integer power.

Add the exponents

why the exponents can not be negative

You multiply the exponents.

When multiplying numbers with exponents, you add the exponents.

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

When multiplying something with exponents, you add it. When dividing something with exponents, you subtract it.

You can have negative exponents anywhere. When they are in the denominator, they are equivalent to positive exponents in the numerator of a fraction.

The laws of exponents work the same with rational exponents, the difference being they use fractions not integers.

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.

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

It is equivalent to: 86 in exponents

Exponents are the expodential growth in something.

Sum the exponents.

No, but you can rewrite it as an expression with exponents if you want.

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

In a multiplication problem with exponents, one should not multiple the exponents. Rather, it would be correct to multiply the numbers while adding the exponents together.

You add exponents when multiplying. Ex: (xm) × (xn) = xm+n

nothing, keep the exponents the same, remember you can only add or subtract when the exponents are the same

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

If the exponents are associated with non-integers, or if the exponents are non-integers, it is very likely that the expression does not represent integers.If the exponents are associated with non-integers, or if the exponents are non-integers, it is very likely that the expression does not represent integers.If the exponents are associated with non-integers, or if the exponents are non-integers, it is very likely that the expression does not represent integers.If the exponents are associated with non-integers, or if the exponents are non-integers, it is very likely that the expression does not represent integers.
