You would subtract the exponents. For instance, when solving (x-3)5/(x-3)2, you would find an answer of (x-3)3.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the Quotient rule of exponents in algebra?

The quotient rule of exponents in Algebra states that dividing expressions with the same base you subtract the exponents. However, the base cannot be equal to zero.The above statement follows this rule in Algebra:xm/xn = xm-n;x cannot equal 0Here's an example:x15/x5 = x15-5 = x10


Why don't we change the exponents during like terms?

Exponents are higher in priority in terms of the order of operations, and do not combine in the same way as you would simple add/subtract/multiply/divide. So, if you have: 26 + 24 This is a polynomial in base 2 with different powers. It would be this in binary: 1010000 ...which would not be the same as 210: 1000000000 In order to be able to change exponents, you have to be multiplying factors using the same base, as in: 26 * 24 = 210 ...because the exponents are also indicating how many times you are multiplying each base by itself, and multiplication is the same as the basal function of the exponent (repeated multiplication).


What you do with the exponents when you you are multiplying?

If you are multiplying numbers with exponents, and the base is the same, you can just add exponents. For example, 104 x 105 = 109.


Multiply and simplify 5 to the 9th power X 5 to the 7th power?

Since the base is the same, just add the exponents. 59 x 57 = 516.Since the base is the same, just add the exponents. 59 x 57 = 516.Since the base is the same, just add the exponents. 59 x 57 = 516.Since the base is the same, just add the exponents. 59 x 57 = 516.


Is x and y like terms?

No. For purposes of combining "like terms", you need terms that have exactly the same variables, with the same exponents (if there are any).


When multiplying a number exponents that are squared do you add or multiply?

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


How do you subtract like variables with different exponents?

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