In this mini-lesson we'll learn how to multiply and divide two exponential terms with different bases and same exponents. The key to approaching the multiplication and division of two exponential terms with different base is to remember the following rules:
- When two numbers with different bases are multiplied, the rule is am× bm = (ab)m. For example, 34× 24 = (3×2)4 = 64.
- When two numbers with different bases are divided, the rule is am/bm = (a/b)m. For example, 34/24 gives (3/2)4.
