Both multiplication and division properties of exponents have the basic rules of operation for exponents. The associative and communicative laws of multiplication underlie the multiplication properties of exponents. We use the associative law to remove parentheses and the commutative law to rearrange factors within a product. In this lesson, students will learn to relate these considerations to the Division Properties of Exponents. Through using these division properties people can find useful information such as ratios.
