Question 1.
Using laws of indices, write proper numbers in the following boxes. (Textbook pg, no. 14)
i. $${ 3 }^{ 5 }\times { 3 }^{ 2 }={ 3 }^{ \left( \right) }$$
ii. $${ 3 }^{ 7 }\div { 3 }^{ 9 }={ 3 }^{ \left( \right) }$$
iii. $$({ 3 }^{ 4 })^{ 5 }={ 3 }^{ \left( \right) }$$
iv. $$5^{ -3 }=\frac { 1 }{ { 5 }^{ \left( \right) } }$$
v. $$5^{ 0 }=\left( \right)$$
vi. $$5^{ 1 }=\left( \right)$$
vii. $$(5\times 7)^{ 2 }={ 5 }^{ \left( \right) }\times { 7 }^{ \left( \right) }$$
viii. $${ \left( \frac { 5 }{ 7 } \right) }^{ 3 }=\frac { { \left( \right) }^{ 3 } }{ { \left( \right) }^{ 3 } }$$
ix. $${ \left( \frac { 5 }{ 7 } \right) }^{ -3 }={ \left( \frac { \left( \right) }{ \left( \right) } \right) }^{ 3 }$$
Solution:
i. $${ 3 }^{ 5 }\times { 3 }^{ 2 }={ 3 }^{ 7 }$$
ii. $${ 3 }^{ 7 }\div { 3 }^{ 9 }={ 3 }^{ -2 }$$
iii. $$({ 3 }^{ 4 })^{ 5 }={ 3 }^{ 20 }$$
iv. $$5^{ -3 }=\frac { 1 }{ { 5 }^{ 3 } }$$
v. $$5^{ 0 }=1$$
vi. $$5^{ 1 }=5$$
vii. $$(5\times 7)^{ 2 }={ 5 }^{ 2 }\times { 7 }^{ 2 }$$
viii. $${ \left( \frac { 5 }{ 7 } \right) }^{ 3 }=\frac { { 5 }^{ 3 } }{ { 7 }^{ 3 } }$$
ix. $${ \left( \frac { 5 }{ 7 } \right) }^{ -3 }={ \left( \frac { 7 }{ 5 } \right) }^{ 3 }$$
