Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to simplify polynomials by using the product property of exponents. By multiplying terms with the same base and adding the exponents, you can simplify a polynomial expression. Remember to pay attention to parentheses and avoid the mistake of using the distributive property on terms within the same set of parentheses. With this knowledge, simplifying polynomials becomes easy.

Lesson Description:

Simplify polynomials using product property of exponents

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
