## How do I do exponents?

To solve basic exponents, multiply the base number repeatedly for the number of factors represented by the exponent. If you need to add or subtract exponents, the numbers must have the same base and exponent.

## How do you solve exponents without a calculator?

So, for example, this is how you would solve 6^3 without a calculator, from start to finish. Write: 6 6 6, because the base number is 6 and the exponent is 3. Then write: 6 x 6 x 6, to place multiplication signs between each of the base numbers. After that, multiply out the first multiplication sign, or 6 x 6 = 36.

## How do you simplify equations?

To simplify any algebraic expression, the following are the basic rules and steps:
1. Remove any grouping symbol such as brackets and parentheses by multiplying factors.
2. Use the exponent rule to remove grouping if the terms are containing exponents.
3. Combine the like terms by addition or subtraction.

## How do you simplify and expand brackets?

Expanding brackets
1. To expand a bracket means to multiply each term in the bracket by the expression outside the bracket. For example, in the expression 3 ( m + 7 ) , multiply both. and 7 by 3, so:
2. Expanding brackets involves using the skills of simplifying algebra. Remember that 2 × a = 2 a and a × a = a 2 .
3. Expand 4 ( 3 n + y ) .

## Do You Solve brackets or parentheses first?

First, we solve any operations inside of parentheses or brackets. Second, we solve any exponents. Third, we solve all multiplication and division from left to right. Fourth, we solve all addition and subtraction from left to right.

## What method do you use to multiply out brackets?

When multiplying out a pair of brackets, multiply each term in the first bracket by each term in the second bracket. So that this doesn’t become too confusing, we use FOIL to help us.

## Do brackets mean to multiply?

The first way tells us to multiply. When we see two or more numbers together that are separated by parentheses, then the parentheses are telling us to multiply. When we are working with parentheses, we can leave the first or the last number without or outside the parentheses. It still means multiplication.
