Three laws which can represent indices in the better way areLaw 1: a^m * a^n = a^(m+n)This is the first law which shows that when multiplying two identical numbers with similar power, the final result will be same to the power of both exponents when they are added together. Example: 2^2 * 2^3 = 2^5Law 2: a^m / a^n = a^(m-n)Second law tells that when we divide two same numbers having different power, then the power will be subtracted. Example: 3^4 / 3^2 = 3^2Law 3: (a^m)^n = a^(m*n)The last and third law tells that if any number is having the power and that power is alsohaving the power, then to get the final result we have to multiply both the powers.Example: (4^2)^3 = 4^6b) 10^3 * 10^2= (10)^5 = 100000c) (5^3)^4 = 5^12 = 2441406253 4 ## Found this document preview useful?
