The laws of indices |
Worksheet |
When a number is to be multiplied by itself, a power or index can be used to write this compactly. In this leaflet, we remind you of how this is done, and state a number of rules, or laws, which can be used to simplify expressions involving indices |

Negative and fractional powers |
Worksheet |
A power, or an index, is used when we want to multiply a number by itself several times. It enables us to write a product of numbers very compactly. The plural of index is indices. In this leaflet we remind you of how this is done, and state a number of rules, or laws, which can be used to simplify expressions involving indices. |
