    Review of basic properties of exponent:

    1. (a)


    2. , so
    (a) (b)
    (c) (d)

    3. (a)

    4. (a)


    5. (a)


    6. (a)



    (e) Using the distributive property of multiplication,




    7. a)

    So the quotient is (3x -2), the remainder is 2.




    8. (a) Extract the GCF x3

    (b) Extract the GCF x3(y+1)2:

    (c) ...
