What are Polynomials?
Power- The product when a number is multiplied by itself a given number of times.
Base- In a power, the number that is used as a factor.
Exponent- In a power, the superscript number that tells how many times the base is used as a factor.
Monomial- An expression that is either a numeral, a variable, or the product of a numeral and one or more variables.
Similar or Like Terms- Two monomials that are exactly alike except for their numerical coefficients.
Power of a Product Property
Multiplying powers with the same base you just have to add the exponents.
Power of a Quotient Power
Dividing two powers with the same nonzero base, subtract the exponent of the denominator from the exponent of the numerator.
