There’s a few rules you might need to know about dealing with powers.

**1) When multiplying you add the powers****2) When dividing you subtract the powers****3) If you raise one power to another then multiply the powers****4) Anything to the power one is itself****5) Anything to the power zero is one****6) One to the power anything is one****7) When a fraction is involved just apply the power to the top and bottom**

**8) For a negative power just flip the fraction (remember you can flip a whole number over 1 – so 8 becomes 1/8)****9) To the power a half just means find the square root, to the power 3 means find the cubed root etc****10) Just do fractional powers in two stages**
