Worksheet Overview

This activity is about simplifying algebraic powers.








Remember what to the power of 4 means and multiply the terms 4 times.


We get:    

a3 × a3 × a3 × a3


Add the indices of identical letters (3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12).

Answer is a12.


A quicker method is to simply multiply together the two powers in the original term: 


3 x 4 = 12, so the answer is a12
