# Exponents to Numbers Worksheets

How Do You Multiply and Divide Exponents? Multiplying and dividing exponents is very tricky. It requires a strong understanding of how exponents work and what are some of the basic mathematical concepts that can help simplify such equations. There are four basic math operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. When we are solving exponents, these operations are used altogether in combination. For example, multiplication between two similar constants or variables results in the addition of their powers. Similarly, when the division takes place between two same numbers or variables, the powers are subtracted from each other. This might seem a bit confusing, so let us try and solve these equations one by one. For instance, if you take 23 x 25 x 24. Then rather than multiplying all these numbers together 12 times, you can simply use the power of addition here, i.e., 23+5+4. This will make 212. The answer you will get is 4096. Similarly, when you have 23 / 26. You simply minus 6 from 3, i.e., 23-6, and the answer would be 2-3. You can use this multiplication and division of exponents in combination to practice more complicated equations.

#### Scary Math

Some functions are together and a derivation walks in. All of the functions but one run & hide. The derivation asks the function "Don't I scare you?" The exponential said, "No, I'm ex " The derivation said " Yeah, but who says I differentiate along x?"
