Powers of Monomials
When you have an exponent raised to another exponent (power of a power), simply multiply the two exponents together.
- (32)2 = 3(2*2) = 34
- (52)3 = 56, since 2*3 =6
- (x3)5 = x15
When you are working with multiplying numbers/variables together and then taking that product to an exponent (power of a product), take the exponent to all the terms being multiplied.
When you combine the two methods, power of a power and power of a product, you can find the power of a monomial.
