In this lesson, we dive into the Quotient Rule for exponents and the meaning of zero exponents. The Quotient Rule states that if you have the same base in the numerator and the denominator, you write the base once and subtract the exponents. We also learn that any number, except zero, to the power of zero equals one, and that x to the negative power will be explained in the next video. Be careful not to assume that the answer to a quotient problem is one, as it depends on the exponents of the base.
