Mathematics SSS 1 First Term
Students should be able to;
- Study laws of indices
- Solve problems related to laws of indices
- Study indical equations and solve exercises
Laws of Indices
The laws governing the mathematical operations involving index numbers are written below. These laws are true for all values of m, n and x ≠ 0.
(1) ax × ay = ax+y
(2) ax ÷ ay = ax−y
(3) a−x= 1/ax
(4) a0 = 1
(5) (ax)y = axy
