In this lesson on exponents, you will learn how to evaluate problems involving positive exponents, with the base being either positive or negative. The base is multiplied by itself a certain number of times, where that number is the exponent. You will also learn how to differentiate between the base and exponent when a negative sign is present, and how to properly place parentheses to indicate the base. Finally, you will discover how to express the opposite of a number and the power of 1. By the end of this lesson, you will have a thorough understanding of how to evaluate exponents with ease.
Shows how to evaluate problems b^n with positive exponents, but where base may be negative. Explains difference when negative sign is in or out of the parentheses.
