Now I want you to think about everything you've learned about the laws of exponents, multiplying monomial, and dividing monomials. When simplifying monomials, you will need to use ALL of this information.

This is fun, let's get started by looking at a quick summary of the properties of exponents that are described in the lessons above.

If you have a combination of monomial expressions contained with in grouping symbols (parenthesis or brackets), these should be evaluated first.

**Power of a Power Property** - (This is similar to evaluating Exponents in the Order of Operations). Always evaluate a power of a power before moving on the problem.

When you **multiply monomial expressions**, add the exponents of like bases.

When you **divide monomial expressions**, subtract the exponents of like bases.

Ok... that was just a quick review. If you need more of a review, please go back and review the entire lesson! Now let's look at a couple of examples!

Now you can see how we apply all of these rules to solving a more complex monomial expression! This is fun, isn't it?

Enter your expression into the calculator below and click "simplify" to find the answer.
