    Use the five properties of exponents to simplify each of the following expressions

    1.

    (y15)(y6) = y21 = y5
    y16 y16

    When one exponent is raised to another, you multiply the exponents; when two exponents are multiplied together, you add them; and when one exponent is divided by another, you subtract them.

    Find the values of each of the following polynomials for the given values of the variable.

    2. - 5x - 6, x = -3 and x = -2

    -(-3)2 - 5(-3) - 6 = -9 + 15 - 6 = -15 + 15 = 0

    -(-2)2 - 5(-4) - 6 = -4 + 20 - 6 = -10 + 20 = 10

    3. What expressions raised to the fourth power is

    Take the 4th root of all the terms involved:

    81 = 34
    x12 = (x3)4
    y8 = (y2)4
    z16 = (z4)4

    So, the expression is equal to (3x3y2z4)4.

    4. The cost in dollars of manufacturing w wing nuts is given by the expression 0.07w + 13.3. Find the cost when 375 wing nuts are made. What is the average cost to manufacture one wing nut.

    Plug w = 375 into 0.07w + 13.3:

    0.07(375) + 13.3 = 26.25 + 13.3 = 39.55

    The average cost is the total price divided by the number of ...
