1 8 (5) Chapter 5 Eponents and Polnomials 5. THE POWER RULES In this section Raising an Eponential Epression to a Power Raising a Product to a Power Raising a Quotient to a Power Variable Eponents Summar of the Rules Applications In Section 5. ou learned some of the basic rules for working with eponents. All of the rules of eponents are designed to make it easier to work with eponential epressions. In this section we will etend our list of rules to include three new ones. Raising an Eponential Epression to a Power An epression such as ( ) consists of the eponential epression raised to the power. We can use known rules to simplif this epression. ( ) Eponent indicates two factors of. Product rule: Note that the eponent is the product of the eponents and. This eample illustrates the power of a power rule. Power of a Power Rule If m and n are an integers and a 0, then (a m ) n a mn. E X A M P L E A graphing cannot prove that the power of a power rule is correct, but it can provide numerical support for it. Using the power of a power rule Use the rules of eponents to simplif each epression. Write the answer with positive eponents onl. Assume all variables represent nonzero real numbers. a) ( ) 5 b) ( ) c) ( ) 5 d) a) ( ) 5 5 Power of a power rule b) ( ) Power of a power rule Definition of a negative eponent ( ) ( ) c) ( ) 5 5 Power of a power rule Product rule d) ( ) 9 ( ) Power of a power rule 7 Quotient rule
2 5. The Power Rules (5) 9 You can use a graphing to illustrate the power of a product rule. Raising a Product to a Power Consider how we would simplif a product raised to a positive power and a product raised to a negative power using known rules. factors of () 8 (a) a (a) (a)(a)(a) a In each of these cases the original eponent is applied to each factor of the product. These eamples illustrate the power of a product rule. Power of a Product Rule If a and b are nonzero real numbers and n is an integer, then (ab) n a n b n. E X A M P L E You can use a graphing to illustrate the power of a quotient rule. Using the power of a product rule Simplif. Assume the variables represent nonzero real numbers. Write the answers with positive eponents onl. a) () 4 b) ( ) c) ( ) a) () 4 () 4 4 Power of a product rule 8 4 b) ( ) () ( ) Power of a product rule 8 Power of a power rule c) ( ) () ( ) ( ) Raising a Quotient to a Power Now consider an eample of appling known rules to a power of a quotient: We get a similar result with a negative power: In each of these cases the original eponent applies to both the numerator and denominator. These eamples illustrate the power of a quotient rule. 5 Power of a Quotient Rule If a and b are nonzero real numbers and n is an integer, then a n a n. b n b
3 70 (54) Chapter 5 Eponents and Polnomials E X A M P L E Using the power of a quotient rule Use the rules of eponents to simplif each epression. Write our answers with positive eponents onl. Assume the variables are nonzero real numbers. a) b) c) d) 4 helpful hint The eponent rules in this section appl to epressions that involve onl multiplication and division. This is not too surprising since eponents, multiplication, and division are closel related. Recall that a a a a and a b a b. a) Power of a quotient rule 8 () b) 9 Because ( ) 9 and ( ) c) 8 d) 4 ) 4 (4 ( ) 9 A fraction to a negative power can be simplified b using the power of a quotient rule as in Eample. Another method is to find the reciprocal of the fraction first, then use the power of a quotient rule as shown in the net eample. E X A M P L E 4 Negative powers of fractions Simplif. Assume the variables are nonzero real numbers and write the answers with positive eponents onl. a) 4 b) 5 c) a) 4 4 The reciprocal of 4 is 4. b) 5 4 Power of a quotient rule ( 5 ) 4 c) 9 4 Variable Eponents So far, we have used the rules of eponents onl on epressions with integral eponents. However, we can use the rules to simplif epressions having variable eponents that represent integers. E X A M P L E 5 Epressions with variables as eponents Simplif. Assume the variables represent integers. a) 4 5 b) (5 ) 5n c) n m
4 5. The Power Rules (55) 7 Did we forget to include the rule (a b) n a n b n?you can easil check with a that this rule is not correct. a) Product rule: b) (5 ) 5 Power of a power rule: n c) 5n ( m n ) 5n Power of a quotient rule ( m ) 5n 5n Power of a power rule 5mn Summar of the Rules The definitions and rules that were introduced in the last two sections are summarized in the following bo. For these rules m and n are integers and a and b are nonzero real numbers.. a n Definition of negative eponent a n. a n a n, a a, and an Negative eponent rules. a 0 Definition of zero eponent 4. a m a n a mn Product rule m 5. a an a mn Quotient rule. (a m ) n a mn Power of a power rule 7. (ab) n a n b n Power of a product rule 8. a b n a b n n Rules for Integral Eponents a n Power of a quotient rule helpful hint In this section we use the amount formula for interest compounded annuall onl. But ou probabl have mone in a bank where interest is compounded dail. In this case r represents the dail rate (APR5) and n is the number of das that the mone is on deposit. E X A M P L E Applications Both positive and negative eponents occur in formulas used in investment situations. The amount of mone invested is the principal, and the value of the principal after a certain time period is the amount. Interest rates are annual percentage rates. Amount Formula The amount A of an investment of P dollars with interest rate r compounded annuall for n ears is given b the formula A P( r) n. Finding the amount According to Fidelit Investments of Boston, U.S. common stocks have returned an average of 0% annuall since 9. If our greatgrandfather had invested $00 in the stock market in 9 and obtained the average increase each ear, then how much would the investment be worth in the ear 00 after 80 ears of growth?
5 7 (5) Chapter 5 Eponents and Polnomials With a graphing ou can enter 00( 0.0) 80 almost as it appears in print. Use n 80, P $00, and r 0.0 in the amount formula: A P( r) n A 00( 0.0) 80 00(.) 80 04,840.0 So $00 invested in 9 would have amounted to $04,840.0 in 00. When we are interested in the principal that must be invested toda to grow to a certain amount, the principal is called the present value of the investment. We can find a formula for present value b solving the amount formula for P: A P( r) n A P Divide each side b ( r) n. ( r) n P A( r) n Present Value Formula Definition of a negative eponent The present value P that will amount to A dollars after n ears with interest compounded annuall at annual interest rate r is given b P A( r) n. E X A M P L E 7 Finding the present value If our greatgrandfather wanted ou to have $,000,000 in 00, then how much could he have invested in the stock market in 9 to achieve this goal? Assume he could get the average annual return of 0% (from Eample ) for 80 ears. Use r 0.0, n 80, and A,000,000 in the present value formula: P A( r) n P,000,000( 0.0) 80 P,000,000(.) 80 Use a with an eponent ke. P A deposit of $488.9 in 9 would have grown to $,000,000 in 80 ears at a rate of 0% compounded annuall. WARMUPS True or false? Eplain our answer. Assume all variables represent nonzero real numbers..

According to Fidelit Investments of Boston, throughout the 990s annual returns on common stocks averaged 9%, whereas annual returns on bonds averaged 9%. a) If ou had invested $0,000 in bonds in 990 and achieved the average return, then what would our investment be worth after 0 ears in 000? $,7.4 Value of $0,000 investment (in thousands of dollars) Stocks Bonds Number of ears after 990 FIGURE FOR EXERCISE 9 b) How much more would our $0,000 investment be worth in 000 if ou had invested in stocks? $, Saving for college. Mr. Watkins wants to have $0,000 in a savings account when his little Wanda is read for college. How much must he deposit toda in an account paing 7% compounded annuall to have $0,000 in 8 ears? $, Saving for retirement. In the 990s returns on Treasur Bills fell to an average of 4.5% per ear (Fidelit Investments). Wilma wants to have $,000,000 when she retires in 45 ears. If she assumes an average annual return of 4.5%, then how much must she invest now in Treasur Bills to achieve her goal? $75, Life epectanc of white males.

The model fails here. In this section Polnomials Evaluating Polnomials Addition and Subtraction of Polnomials Multiplication of Polnomials 5. ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, AND MULTIPLICATION OF POLYNOMIALS A polnomial is a particular tpe of algebraic epression that serves as a fundamental building block in algebra. We used polnomials in Chapters and, but we did not identif them as polnomials. In this section ou will learn to recognize polnomials and to add, subtract, and multipl them. Polnomials The epression 5 7 is an eample of a polnomial in one variable. Because this epression could be written as (5 ) 7 (), we sa that this polnomial is a sum of four terms:, 5, 7, and. A term of a polnomial is a single number or the product of a number and one or more variables raised to whole number powers. The number preceding the variable in each term is called the coefficient of that variable. In 5 7 the coefficient of is, the coefficient of is 5, and the coefficient of is 7. In algebra a number is frequentl referred to as a constant, and so the last term is called the constant term. A polnomial is defined as a single term or a sum of a finite number of terms.
