    I would like help understanding the following: The law of exponents 1) to raise a power to a power we can multiply the exponents with an example. 2) to raise a product to a power we can mulitply the exponents with an example. please explain how you simplified each example. How do laws work with rational exponents? with a third example to simplify that includes (fractional) exponents. I would really appreciate it any suggestions.

    I would like help understanding the following: The law of exponents 1) to raise a power to a power we can multiply the exponents with an example.

    Solution:

    When we have expression having raised a power to a power then we can multiply the exponents.

    That is

    Example:

    2) to raise a product to a power we can multiply the exponents with an example.

    Solution:

    When we have expression having raised a product to an exponent then raise each base of the product to that exponent.

    That is

    Example:

    please explain how you simplified each example. How do laws work with rational exponents? with a third example to simplify that includes (fractional) exponents.

    Solution:

    The laws of exponents work in the same way for rational exponents.

    Example of raise a power to a power:
