Leopold is overjoyed to post this vintage publication as a part of our wide vintage Library assortment. a few of the books in our assortment were out of print for many years, and consequently haven't been obtainable to most of the people. the purpose of our publishing software is to facilitate fast entry to this massive reservoir of literature, and our view is this is an important literary paintings, which merits to be introduced again into print after many many years.

Example 1 Rewrite each product in exponential form. ” 6 is the base. It appears as a factor 5 times. So, 5 is the exponent. 3 is the base. 2 is the exponent. mes47759_ch01_001-025 10/22/2007 16:48 Page 20 pinnacle 201:MHIA038:mhmes2:mes2ch01: 20 Chapter 1 The Real Number System and Geometry You Try 1 Rewrite each product in exponential form. a) 4 ؒ 4 ؒ 4 ؒ 4 ؒ 4 ؒ 4 b) 3 3 3 3 ؒ ؒ ؒ 8 8 8 8 We can also evaluate an exponential expression.

3 1 and is 12. 4 6 You Try 11 Find the LCD for 4 5 and . 6 9 To add or subtract fractions with unlike denominators, begin by identifying the least common denominator. Then, we must rewrite each fraction with this LCD. This will not change the value of the fraction; we will obtain an equivalent fraction. 1 Review of Fractions Example 12 Rewrite 13 3 with a denominator of 12. 4 Solution 3 ? 3 so that ϭ . 4 4 12 To obtain the new denominator of 12, the “old” denominator, 4, must be multiplied by 3.
