Multiplying Monomials
Monomials A monomial is a number, a variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables withnonnegative integer exponents. An expression of the form xn is called a power and represents the product you obtain when x is used as a factor ntimes. To multiply two powers that have the same base, add the exponents.
Product of Powers | For any number a and all integers m and n, am· an = am + n. |

Simplify Expressions Anexpression of the form (xm)n is called a power of a power and represents the product you obtain when xm is used as a factor n times. To find thepower of a power, multiply exponents.
Power of a Power | For any number a and all integers m and n, (am)n = amn. |
Power of a Product | Forany number a and all integers m and n, (ab)m = ambm. |
