Holt Algebra 1 7-4 Division Properties of Exponents A quotient of powers with the same base can be found by writing the powers in a factored form and dividing out common factors. Notice the relationship between the exponents in the original quotient and the exponent in the final answer: 5 – 3 = 2.

Simplify each quotient. Simplify the exponent. Write 0.5 in scientific notation as 5 x 10 . The second two terms have the same base, so add the exponents. Simplify the exponent. Holt Algebra 1 7-4 Division Properties of Exponents Writing Math You can “split up” a quotient of products into a product of quotients: Example: Holt Algebra 1 7-4 Division Properties of Exponents Check It Out! Example 2 Simplify and write the answer in scientific notation. Write as a product of quotients. Simplify each quotient. Simplify the exponent. Write 1.1 in scientific notation as 11 x 10 . The second two terms have the same base, so add the exponents. Simplify the exponent. Holt Algebra 1 7-4 Division Properties of Exponents Example 3: Application The Colorado Department of Education spent about dollars in fiscal year 2004-05 on public schools. There were about students enrolled in public school. What was the average spending per student? Write your answer in standard form. To find the average spending per student, divide the total debt by the number of students. Write as a product of quotients.
