Second indices rule
Third indices rule
Fourth Indices Rule
ProofWe know that 2/2 = 1 the same is true to any number divide by it self;
Fifth Indices RuleThe following indices rule deal with negative and fractional powers.
Sixth Indices Rule
Now we shall look at an expansion to this rule. The indices rule explained above is derived from the following rule in fact. We have not powered the final answer with 1 because x to the power of 1 is equal to x. This is just the harder fractional indices rule.
