### Which of the following is NOT an explanation of the rule for simplifying expressions containing a negative exponent?

• A.

Use the reciprocal of the base and change the exponent to a positive number.

• B.

Use the denominator of the exponent as a root of the base. Use the numerator as a power.

• C.

Use 1 divided by that base raised to the opposite (positive) exponent.

• D.

Make the exponent positive and move the factor to the other side of the fraction bar.

B. Use the denominator of the exponent as a root of the base. Use the numerator as a power.
Explanation
The rule for simplifying expressions containing a negative exponent states that we can use the reciprocal of the base and change the exponent to a positive number. We can also use 1 divided by that base raised to the opposite (positive) exponent. Another way to simplify is to make the exponent positive and move the factor to the other side of the fraction bar. However, using the denominator of the exponent as a root of the base and using the numerator as a power is not a valid explanation of the rule.

### What does it mean to simplify an algebraic expression containing negative and/or zero exponents?

• A.

It means to rewrite the expression with only positive exponents

• B.

It means to substitute values for the variables and find the value of the expression.

• C.

It means to combine all of the exponents of like variables.

• D.

It means to use the quadratic formula to solve for the value of the variable.

A. It means to rewrite the expression with only positive exponents
Explanation
To simplify an algebraic expression containing negative and/or zero exponents means to rewrite the expression with only positive exponents. This is done by applying the rules of exponents, such as moving negative exponents to the denominator and converting zero exponents to a value of 1. By simplifying the expression in this way, it becomes easier to work with and evaluate.
